The Children's Room at Vineyard Haven Library is now open daily, no appointment required.

  • Appointments are no longer needed to visit the Children's Room, but capacity limits remain in place (up to six patrons at one time).
  • When the Children's Room is at capacity no one else may enter, and browsing time may be limited to 15 minutes if others are waiting.
  • Children under age 8 must be accompanied at all times by an adult caregiver.
  • Toys, table seating, and computers have been temporarily removed from the Children's Room.
  • Remember to bring your library card, or download the CLAMS Library Network App, available for Apple and Android devices.
  • Because of limits currently in place, families should not plan on the Library being a standard part of their after school care plan.


Please feel free to call ahead if you are looking for specific items. Don't have time to browse? Not quite sure what you are looking for? Fill out this form and Children's Librarian Emily will curate a personalized book bag for you for scheduled pickup.

Throughout the library all patrons over the age of two are required to wear a face covering, regardless of personal vaccination status. If you or a family member are experiencing symptoms of illness including fever, cough, or shortness or breath, please postpone your visit until you are feeling better.
