Story Time & Toddler Time

Storytimes & Toddler Times resume after Labor Day.

Preschool 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.

Bilingual Story Time is for the family to come and enjoy stories and a craft in both Spanish & English. Offered one Saturday a month at Main, 2:30pm. Check calendar for specific dates.

Toddler Time 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.
