Located on the east end of the first floor, the Weezie Library for Children was built in 1996 with a generous grant from the Weezie Foundation and named in memory of Louise Frances Walker. The Weezie Library is enhanced with original artwork from several picture books about Nantucket, hand-painted tables and chairs, and Otto the Elephant, a fanciful animal chair by Nantucket artist Clara Urbahn.
The collection encompasses many reading levels and formats: board, picture, beginning reader, chapter, and nonfiction books; music CDs; audio books, videocassettes and DVDs. The library also houses magazines, reference materials, and foreign language books. Throughout the year Weezie Library offers a full range of free Programs and Events for children.
