Wolfner :: Youth and School Services:: Youth Services
Welcome to the Youth Services page of Wolfner Library’s web site. This page is for parents, grandparents, neighbors and others who know a child who might qualify for Wolfner services.
Wolfner Library serves Missouri children who are blind and visually impaired, as well as kids who cannot use standard print materials due to a physical disability or a reading disability. To find out more about who can use this service, read through the Eligibility and Certification section of our application.
Youth can register for home service by completing an Application for Free Library Service: Individuals and mailing it to Wolfner Library at the address on the application. Registration is a one-time procedure, and once registered, a child remains in the Wolfner Library patron database, even if years pass between periods of active use. If you are not sure if your child is registered, contact the Youth Services Librarian by email or call 800-392-2614. New registrations are accepted throughout the year.
Our online public access catalog, called WolfPAC, is available to you 24/7. It allows you to search for books by author, title, subject and keyword. You can also request and reserve books online, as well as review which books are checked out on an account.
Wolfner Library also offers the Racing to Read Early Literacy Program. Reading is essential to success in life. Early literacy skills prepare young children to learn to read. Wolfner Library created this special program for blind and visually impaired children between birth and six years old to gain the skills they will need to learn to read. To learn more about the early literacy program, visit Wolfner Library's Racing to Read page.
