The Family Room


Welcome to The Family Room: Rotary Brockville

The Family Room and the children’s programs highlight play-based learning and fun.  The room is full of books, technology and toys so families can come together in a relaxed and comfortable way to read, play, connect and explore.

Children's Library cards are issued at any age. Bring a parent or caregiver along for ID.

Children’s Early Literacy Stations

We have Literacy Stations in The Family Room . These stations are an educational solution for preschool through third grade. They include 26 educational games/programs across seven subject areas, all top rated by Children’s Software Review.
