Children at the Library

WELCOME! The Joslin Library has a wonderful children’s room which serves a wide array of interests and ages.  Our children’s Librarian, Meredith has developed lots of fun programming to engage children and encourage a life long love of reading and learning.


Meets EVERY Sunday at 3:30 PM

Join us every Sunday for a lively and fun card game.  Magic is a tradable card game (TCG) where you build your collection of cards by trading with your friends, assembling decks of cards, and battling against an opponent and their deck. You cast powerful spells and summon monstrous creatures aiming to knock your opponent down from 20 life to zero. The game is constantly changing as new cards are released throughout the year. As you get new cards, whether from these new sets or through trading with your friends, you can continuously update your decks and discover a whole new game!
