Children’s Services at the McKinney Public Library
The library designs programs and selects materials that help you move your child through healthy development. Our children’s programs and events are thoughtfully planned to provide a child a fun and positive experience with books and information.
Keeping a journal of the things you read helps you find even more of what you enjoy. Our Beanstack service is easy to use. Parents must register individually, then register each child as a reader to get the most out of the experience. Through the service you will also get recommendations.
