A brief rundown of our weekly kids’ programs:

Lap Sit is on Thursday mornings at 9:30 - this is our first introduction to someone else reading to your child ages 0-18 months. It is a fun parent/child time together.

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

Preschool Story Time is on Tuesdays and Thursdays, 9:30 – 10:15am.  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.

*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.
