Welcome to the Children’s Department!


The Selma Dallas County Public Library Children’s Department is a very special place to visit. With brightly colored walls of red, blue and yellow, each area is full of surprises for all ages. Centered in the middle of everything, is our 240 gallon salt water aquarium with Nemo and his friends all waiting to say “hi”.

Check out the wall toys, puzzles, puppets and books that are on the shelves and ready also for a visit from you!
And don’t forget Lulu the Library Hamster!

Library cards are available at the small size children’s desk for all readers in the first grade and the collection of books is easy to use. There are books for beginners, chapter books for older readers and assorted series for teen readers. In other words, we can find the right book for you!
