Thursdays at 11:30 am

(NO STORYTIMES DEC 20 - 29, 2016)

Do you have children ages 2 and under? We have a storytime just for you! 

Each Thursday at 11:30 am, toddlers and their caregivers enjoy a half hour play-based program featuring developmentally appropriate stories, songs, rhymes, and activities that will keep toddlers moving while introducing them to the storytime experience. Important language development happens by age three, so the selected activities are perfect for building language, growing vocabulary, and discovering the magical world of books.


Twice each month you can drop by the library and get help with whatever computer or e-reader questions you have. These sessions are FREE!
