Oak Ridge Public Library
The Oak Ridge Public Library is open seven days a week and librarians are eager to assist both residents and visitors alike! A variety of programs and events are open and available to the public. Attend a class in the auditorium, learn about local history in the Center for Oak Ridge Oral History collection, or enjoy access to audiobooks and the web.
The Children’s Room offers a variety of resources for little ones and their parents. Story time is held on Monday and Tuesday mornings at 10:30am. Mondays are reserved for children under 3 years old (with an adult present) and include songs, games, and short stories. Tuesdays are for children 3 to 5 and may include stories, puppets, songs, and more! Not sure what your child might want to read? Book lists are curated by our librarians to assist in finding the perfect book for your child based on age and subject matter.
Ruff Reading is available at special times (call to find out when!) Provided by H.A.B.I.T (Human and Animal Bond in Tennessee), Ruff Reading allows children to practice reading while cuddling with a furry, four-legged friend! Children participating in the program have been shown to increase their reading skills and self-confidence!
