Kids

Welcome to the Children's Department!

The Harnett County Public Library Children’s Department serves youth from birth through age 18. Our programs foster a love of reading and learning among the youth of our community. We serve to meet the dynamic needs of children and the challenges they face to prepare them for a better future.
