Check out this fun video featuring The Brentwood Library!

Congratulations to the Children's Library staff at the Brentwood Library!
In April 2013 Reading Rainbow named the Brentwood Library's Children's Library as third on the top ten children's libraries list. We are honored by the recognition and invite you to visit the Reading Rainbow's blog post.

Last year Livability.com choose our children's library as one of the top 10 children's libraries in the country. Libraries were selected based on their appealing spaces for children, full range of programs, large collections, new technologies, and proven success in getting kids to engage. We're so thrilled to be chosen for this honor! Click here to see the other libraries that made the list.
