Franklin County Libraries are committed to encouraging children to read and enjoy their learning experiences. We provide them with reading programs, educational games to help them learn computer skills and other subjects, research materials for school projects, as well as providing them with books suited to their interests and age groups. Franklin County Libraries take great pride in extending the search for knowledge beyond the classroom.
