Children and Youth Services

Driftwood Public Library is committed to reaching out to the children and youth of Lincoln County with a variety of programs that benefit babies through teens.

In addition to these programs, Driftwood Public Library's Youth Services Librarian makes many outreach visits throughout the year to summer day camps, public and private school classrooms, after school programs, Head Start programs and day care facilities, bringing stories, songs, puppets and more to spread the word about libraries.
