Family Activities

Looking for free family activities?  The Hackettstown Public Library is proud to offer crafts, special activities, and programs for our youngest patrons all year round.  From puzzles, game computers, coloring sheets, a giant chalkboard wall, weekly word activities and of course a comfy space to read, kids are welcome to engage and explore our Children’s Department!

Parents and caregivers are encouraged to enjoy a fun morning out with your growing little one at the Library!  We offer early literacy programs for Infants, Toddlers, and Preschoolers.  Each program is geared specifically for the particular age group and includes activities like storytelling, songs, fingerplays and simple crafts.

The Library also offers after-school events, evening and weekend programs, and occasional visits from performers and educators.  To find out more information about all of our children’s programs, visit our calendar of events.
