Play and learn at Story Times!
Children birth to age 6 will build a foundation for reading success through play, stories, and language fun! We offer three regular story time sessions during the year: fall, winter and spring. During the summer, we have special story time sessions. Check with your library for more details.
Some story times take place before the library branch is open. You can still enter the library before opening time, and the meeting room/story time area will be accessible.
All story times are drop-in. No registration required.
Age ranges are recommendations only.
You can join in at any point during the story time.
Build a foundation for success in future reading.
