West Michigan’s Favorite Libraries

Libraries are more than just books these days. (Though I wouldn’t complain if they were just books!) In an effort to get readers starting young, many libraries have children’s areas stocked with toys and bookish fun. You can also find popular story times at certain area branches in addition to fun kid-friendly activities throughout the year.

See a detailed list of library play areas here.
