Storytime

Regularly scheduled library programs and story times are offered for children ages 12 months and older. All story times include age appropriate stories, finger plays, and interactive activities. All other programs are literacy based.

An adult is required to stay with children attending Book Babies and Toddler Time. An adult bringing children to other library story times or on-going programs is required to stay in the building and may sit in if that makes the child more comfortable.

Please check our online calendar for specific dates and times.
