About The Children's Corner

undefined***Check out our Summer Program, JSU COLLEGE FOR KIDS, on the EVENTS page! (June 4th-July26th, 2018)

Welcome to the Children's Corner at the Houston Cole Library! 

The Children's Corner is located on the 5th floor of the Houston Cole Library and is open to the public. Visit us for an event or just stop by and enjoy reading to your children in our colorful children's reading room. Most events are geared towards elementary-aged children, but folks of all ages are always welcome.The Children’s Corner is a creative and fun space designed to foster a love for children’s literature and reading and to promote literacy to elementary-aged children in East Central  Alabama. In addition to weekly read-aloud nights, the facility will host book readings and signings by children’s authors and illustrators; invite community speakers who have special areas of expertise to share with children on a variety of topics; serve as a space for readers’ theater, arts & crafts, and many other types of creative children’s programming-- all of which will promote books, libraries, and the importance of reading.

The Houston Cole Library, which is the heart of the Jacksonville State University campus, is an impressive thirteen-story building with magnificent views, a coffee shop, and a children’s section which includes over 21,000 titles. Come share the magic of once upon a time at the Children's Corner!
