The Sunnyside Library is inside the beautiful Sunnyside Elementary School. We serve the children, faculty, and staff of Sunnyside School as well as the public. 

We offer After School Enrichment Programing, which starting mid-January will include visits from the Powerhouse Science Center with hands-on science fun for the kids. 

We are working with 9R to get a Minecraft Club started in early in 2022.
