Beginning Story Time & A Craft (Wednesdays at 10:00am) – Join us for story time and a creative craft. Promote early literacy. A great way to introduce your little ones to the library!

Lego My Library Program (Mondays at 4:00pm) – Every Monday, hundreds of Legos are set out. What is the connection between books and Legos? It promotes early literacy development by increasing attention span, spatial awareness, memory, creativity, language, and vocabulary. It lays the foundation for mathematical reasoning and logical thinking. The goal is simple…to have fun!

Children’s Sign Language (Tuesdays at 10:00am) – Learn signs through favorite stories such as Brown Bear, Brown Bear and Goodnight Moon as presented by Jennifer Duncan of Signs of Play. It’s going to be a delightful time for rediscovering nursery rhymes through singing as well!

Sing, Play & Dance Program for the little ones (1st & 3rd Fridays at 10:00am) – Come join the fun as we sing songs, play instruments, dance with ribbon wands and more! Everybody’s invited!
