Story Times are ongoing for ages 0-6 years old. Story times consist of age-appropriate stories, rhymes, and fingerplays. Crafts are included in the programs for ages 3-6. Registration for fall, winter and spring sessions is required.
Participation in a library story time program is a great way to introduce new books to your child, help them foster a love of reading, and give them a chance to make new friends. They are also fun and sometimes crafty too.
