PJ Storytime/Sensory Friendly

PJ Storytime returns on a new night and time! We'll turn down some lights and keep our voices soft as young children and caregivers visit for quiet stories, gentle songs and rhymes and a snack. PJ's and stuffed toys are welcome! Families welcome at 6 to check out materials, get library cards, etc. Themed sleepy stories start at 6:30, with quiet songs/rhymes, a snack and then home to bed at 7 pm. (Dim lights and quiet voices make this storytime appropriate for children who prefer a sensory-friendly experience.)
