Amherst Public Library

Updated: Apr 22

221 Spring St, Amherst, OH 44001

HOURS: Monday-Thursday: 9am-8:30pm / Friday-Saturday: 10am-5pm / Closed Sundays

Amherst Public Library is one of our top 5 favorite libraries in Lorain County. They did a huge renovation and extension a couple years ago in 2022 and added a whole new children's area on the 2nd floor.

It's so nice having a whole separate floor for the littles to play and learn where you're not as worried about them being a little loud or booking it for the door. They even have a lovely little reading terrace accessible from the children's area and it's so nice reading a book outside in the fresh air, on a beautiful day!

Inside, the children's area has tons of fun play features like:

  • Digital Game Table

  • Train Set & Table

  • Play Kitchen

  • Doll House

  • Interactive Light Wall

  • Magnetic Gear Wall

  • Lots of Puzzles

  • Building Blocks

  • Colorful Sensory Floor Squares

  • Tablet Station

  • Puppet Show Stage

  • Coloring Sheets

  • Seasonal Scavenger Hunts

They have some of our favorite story time sessions here with lots of fun and interactive activities, songs, crafts, and more! They also have tons of fun and free programing for all ages like "Canine Reading Buddies" where you can read with a therapy dog or adult craft nights, and so much more! Be sure to check out their calendar of events on their website at:

We just love it here & know your littles will too! 💕
