Our Collection

Picture books, chapter books, graphic novels, books on CD, Playaway Views, puzzles, puppets, magazines, and a large non-fiction collection ensure that there is something for every reading level.

Visit our branches and talk to a librarian, check out recommendations on our blog, or browse our catalog.


From storytimes for babies and toddlers to special afterschool programs for the school-age set, our children’s programs make learning fun.

Early Literacy

In addition to storytimes, Heights Libraries offers an interactive early literacy playroom at the Coventry, Lee Road, and Noble Neighborhood branches, and a partnership with Family Connections’ Little Heights early literacy playroom at our Lee Road branch.

Family Connections’ Little Heights Literacy Playroom

Little Heights Literacy Playroom is a collaboration between Family Connections and Heights Libraries, and was designed with the belief that parents are their children’s first teachers. Carefully chosen play materials give parents the perfect chance to help their child learn the art of counting, sorting, matching and much more. Free drop-in sessions are offered throughout the week and are open year-round.  Pre-registration is not required. See the children’s program calendar or visit Family Connections’ Little Heights early literacy playroom for times and days.
