Music for Munchkins will be at 10:30am on Tuesday 3/3, and Thursday 3/19.  If you are between the ages of 0-5 years old, come join Erin as she lets you explore instruments, sing songs and finish off with parachute play.  It’s a good way for kids to express themselves and have some fun!

Pre-K Tech is a program run by Erin at 10:30am on Tuesdays 3/10 and 3/24. This fun program is where young ones can get an educational experience with some of the technology in the library.

Kids Club is for kids in grades K-6, who are interested in joining us for games, crafts, team challenges, and more. New members are always welcome and we will meet every Tuesday from 3:30 – 4:30pm.

Story Time Programs

Family Story Time is a new program offered every first Saturday of the month, unless otherwise stated. Erin will offer a Saturday story time for families who are busy during the week. This month’s Family Story Time will be held Saturday, 3/7 at 10am.

PJ Story Time - join Linda on Wednesdays 3/4 & 3/18 at 6:30pm for this fun evening program. You can wear your jammies – Linda does!

Toddler Story Time is for those 18 months to about 3 years old. We sing songs and read books. It is on Fridays from 9:30 – 10:00am. The stories are short to appeal to their attention spans.

Preschool Story Time is on Tuesdays and Thursdays, 9:30 – 10:15amWe also have a new addition of Preschool Story Time every Wednesday at 1:30pm, which will have the same theme as our Tuesday story time. We have a theme with our books, then make a craft project to tie it all together. Every session is different, so feel free to come to both. This is for children who are getting ready for preschool or kindergarten.

Baby and Me is a story time program for babies 0-15 months, held every Thursday at 9:30am (formerly known as the Lap Sit program). Join us for nursery rhymes, simple stories, songs, and more!

*We do not have a sign up for these programs – just show up for some fun.  All of our story times require the parent/caregiver to be present. Moms, dads, and other caregivers have enjoyed the experience and we encourage you to  stop by.

Lego Club will meet Saturday 3/14. They meet every 2nd Saturday of the month from 1:00 to 3:00 p.m in the Smart Community Room. Participants bring their most recent Lego creation to show to others.
