The Forest Avenue Library features an extensive Foreign Language collection, including materials in Spanish, Arabic, Vietnamese, and Karen. We also host a Language Learning Center where we provide computers to access Rosetta Stone, Pronunciator, and English Language Learning materials.

Children will be delighted with Rosie's Forest, our early literacy center, which includes artwork done by Sticks and a wide variety of early literacy stations where children can come to learn and play.

Located in a vibrant neighborhood, the Forest Avenue Library welcomes community groups and individuals to use our meeting spaces and take advantage of everything the library has to offer.
