Story Time & Toddler Time
*PLEASE NOTE* During the week of spring break (April 6th-10th) Toddler Times will be held at their original times, but Storytimes will not. There are special, registraiton-only Storytimes scheduled for this week. Click here to register for those programs.Story Time is for children ages 3-5. Children hear books read to them, sing songs, play games and make a small craft they can take home. Each storytime has a theme.
Toddlertime is for infants through two years old. Parents and children sing songs, do fingerplays and are introduced to picture books. It is a time to sit and interact with your child and become familiar with the library.
