Items for Children

Children learn and acquire early literacy skills through play!

  • Double Sided Easel Early literacy does not children readingmean early reading. It does mean knowing how to hold a book or a piece of chalk as well as being able to tell a story and draw a picture to illustrate their ideas. The double sided easel will help children develop these skills.  For this reason we would like to be able to offer the double sided easel.
  • Sea Life Magnetic Sand Table The magnetic sand table helps children develop hand eye coordination and storytelling skills as they find items in the sand.
  • Magnetic Puzzles The magnetic puzzles help children develop hand eye coordination as well as learn colors, numbers, and the alphabet.

Items for Library Preservation


  • Compact Shelving provides more shelving in a smaller space.  It is perfect for rare or valuable items as the shelving cannot be accessed without staff assistance. This is a creative solution to the limited space in the Audra Browman room, which houses MPL's rare Montana and genealogical resources.
