Storytime Schedule: January – June 

Lapsit Squirm & Wiggle

Tuesdays: 9:30 to 10:00 a.m. – For infants ages 6 to 18 months
This lively lapsit program provides one-on-one interaction between caregiver and child. We will share books, learn nursery rhymes and enjoy music, movement and toys.

 

Toddler Time

Tuesdays: 10:30 to 11:15 a.m. – For children ages 18 to 36 months
This program encourages children and their caregivers to actively participate in stories, songs, and finger plays. We will work on our toddler skills, such as counting, color recognition, and taking turns, while having lots of fun.

 

Pre-School

Tuesdays, 1:30 to 2:15 p.m. and Thursdays 10:30 to 11:15 a.m. – For children ages 3 to 5 years
Each story time is based around a theme and includes picture books, flannel board stories, finger plays, and a simple craft. Parents/caregivers are welcome to join their children in these activities or make it an independent session. (Parents/caregivers must remain at the library.)
