A brief rundown of our weekly kids’ programs:

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.

Lap Sit

Lap Sit is every Thursday at 9:30am.

*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.
