Welcome to the Children’s Page!

At the Belfast Free Library the entire second floor is a space for children and teens. This welcoming place is filled with a broad collection of books, audiobooks, creative play materials, and digital resources. Our friendly staff is here to help kids, parents, caregivers, and educators find the materials they need and the stories they’ll love!

Access free audiobooks and ebooks with your library card through Maine's Cloud Library.

At this time BFL patrons have free access to all of the great resources through Tumblebooks, too! These databases offer hundreds of interactive books that read to your child. More audiobooks are available through their AudioBookCloud. Check out the Tumblemath e-books database, too.

Questions? Need help with your library card or help accessing these resources? Call the library weekdays 10:00 - 4:00 for answers @ (207) 338-3884 ext. 10 or contact us by email.
