STORYTIME

Wednesdays, July 6th, 13th, 20th, and 27th

Join Miss Ann for one of our Storytimes on the patio behind the library (we’ll meet indoors if the weather is poor). The ages listed for each group can be flexible, especially for those in the middle of the two age groups. We hope you will join us for whichever Storytime meets your child’s needs and interests.

  • 10:30 AM – Small Wonders: For toddlers up to 35 months of age. Enjoy a briefer  Storytime (20-30 minutes)  for our youngest patrons and their caregivers, featuring songs, movement activities and age-appropriate stories.

  • 11:00 AM – PreSchool Storytime: For ages 3-6 years. This Storytime is a bit longer for older children (30-45 minutes) and includes more stories, movement activities, and songs, followed by a craft activity.
