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. From storytimes, STEM programming and teen activities, to afterschool and homeschool programs, we have something for everyone!

We are so excited to announce our newest library service, Dial-A-Story! With this program, parents can call 910-814-6350 anytime of the day to let their children listen to a pre-recorded message of one of our librarians reading a storybook! The stories will be updated every few weeks and will feature different readers each time.
