James R. Pelphrey Kids Room
The James R. Pelphrey Kids Room is a place to bring your children to learn and have fun. We have a large selection of easy to read books our collection includes a non-fiction section. We have Dr. Seuss, Brown Bear Brown Bear, Curious George, and many, many more books.
There are two computers available for playing games in our kids room for children 3rd grade and under. Some of the games include Finding Nemo's Underwater World of Fun, Disney's Search for the the Secret Keys, Barbie's Nail Designer, M & M's The Lost Formulas, and many more.We believe the kids will enjoy the games which are educational and fun.
A mural, painted by Catherine Smart Wells, is located in our Kids Room. The mural was inspired by several different landmarks in Johnson County including Barn Rock in western Johnson County, Little Mud Lick Falls (Jenny Wiley Falls), and sycamore trees located behind the library.
