Welcome to Pacific Grove Public Library Children’s and Youth Services! This is one of the most popular spots in town for young people and their families to spend time together, to enjoy the wonderful Children's Programs, to study, or simply to experience the pleasures of reading.


Storytime and Crafternoons are going Virtual!  The Pacific Grove Public Library is offering Virtual Storytimes and Crafternoons accessible 24/7.   Please join Librarian Mary and Barnebe for rhymes, songs, and fun during Virtual Storytimes.

Virtual Storytime

Create crafts from home while watching the how-to Crafternoon videos.  Storytime videos will be posted daily, Monday through Friday, and Crafternoon videos will be posted every Wednesday while the residents of Pacific Grove are sheltering in place.

Virtual Crafternoon


Kids’ collections include picture books, beginning readers, fiction for 2nd to 7th graders, non-fiction, a reference collection, magazines, audiobooks, and CDs in the Children’s Room as well as eBooks.


Class visits for all ages are welcome by appointment only. Please call the Library at (831) 648-5760.
