There will be one toddler time session on Wednesdays at 10:30 AM beginning on January 18th and running through May 10th (excluding the weeks of school vacation). Toddler time is for children ages 0-3 and is 15-20 minutes of short stories, songs, rhymes, puppet visits, egg shaking, scarf waving, and a whole lot of fun! Space is limited, so be sure to secure your spot for the 15-week session.

Preschool story hour returns on Thursdays at 10:30 AM this winter and spring! This 45-minute program is for children ages 3-5 who are able to separate from their parent/caregiver for the first portion of the program. We begin with about 30 minutes of longer stories, rhymes, songs, and the chance to "Go Bananas!" before we welcome the grownups into the story room to help everyone with their craft! Preschool story hour will run from January 19th through May 11th.

Registration for both the Wednesday toddler time and our preschool story hour is required. Once a child is registered, they will hold a spot for the entire 15-week session. We require walk-in registration for the first three days, and will begin taking sign-ups over the phone or email beginning on Saturday, January 14th.

Mark your calendars because registration for the winter/spring story hour session begins on Wednesday, January 11th!

There will be one toddler time session on Wednesdays at 10:30 AM beginning on January 18th and running through May 10th (excluding the weeks of school vacation). Toddler time is for children ages 0-3 and is 15-20 minutes of short stories, songs, rhymes, puppet visits, egg shaking, scarf waving, and a whole lot of fun! Space is limited, so be sure to secure your spot for the 15-week session.

Preschool story hour returns on Thursdays at 10:30 AM this winter and spring! This 45-minute program is for children ages 3-5 who are able to separate from their parent/caregiver for the first portion of the program. We begin with about 30 minutes of longer stories, rhymes, songs, and the chance to "Go Bananas!" before we welcome the grownups into the story room to help everyone with their craft! Preschool story hour will run from January 19th through May 11th.

Registration for both the Wednesday toddler time and our preschool story hour is required. Once a child is registered, they will hold a spot for the entire 15-week session. We require walk-in registration for the first three days, and will begin taking sign-ups over the phone or email beginning on Saturday, January 14th.
