Kids and Toddlers
At Fort Lewis Mesa Public Library we strive to provide a welcoming environment for kids and toddlers to explore their world. Our AWE Early Literacy Station offers off-internet literacy activities for young people to delve into. The Lego table, wooden train and wooden blocks and puppets provide creative play opportunities. Puppets are available to check out, too!
Foster your child’s love of books with our selection of picture books to read together and board books especially for little hands to love. Wednesday’s story time offers a new theme each week with stories and crafts to foster early literacy.
Teens and Tweens
Come check out our Young Adult section. We have a number of the most popular series and regularly get in new releases. Stay tuned for upcoming events especially for you!
Adults and Seniors
Something for everyone! We are always getting in new releases of both fiction and non-fiction books. No RedBox or fast enough internet for Netflix? Check out a DVD from us! We have old favorites as well as new releases available. Ease your commute with an audio book. No or slow internet? Come use our computers. Need to do something on line but not sure how? We can help you. Share company with other book lovers and join The Bell, Book and Candle Society, FLM’s own book club. They meet on the second Tuesday at 5:30.
