Story Time & Toddler Time

Story Time & Toddler Time

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.

Questions about Story Time or Toddlertime? Contact the Children's Librarian, Shannon Kruer.

PLEASE NOTE: Children's programing resumes in September. There is no Story Time or Toddler Time in August.
