The Main Floor
The main floor is a popular place for individuals and groups to meet. Wifi is available throughout the library, and there is a quiet area, as well as spaces for tutoring or group studying. This floor houses the entire adult collection, public computers, the 3D Printer, fax machine, scanner and copier. The Information Desk provides an all-in-one service center for patron reference questions. Teens can access the YA Room here, which has a study and gaming area.

Children’s Room (Downstairs)
The Children’s Room in the Katonah Village Library provides a wide variety of programs for children from infants to upper elementary school age. Story hours are regularly scheduled for lap-sitting babies, toddlers, and three-, four-, and five-year-olds. Older children may participate in craft programs and reading programs.
Adjacent to the Children’s Room are two spacious meeting rooms which are available for rent to non profits, business and private citizens on a per diem basis. The Library also provides space for artists to host art exhibits for up to three weeks at a time.
