Mondays at 10 AM

Where: In the Community Room

Grown-ups and big kids, please share in the fun too! These Storytimes are 20-30 minutes long and are filled with short books, songs, action rhymes and more!  Some songs, stories and rhymes are repeated each week and new ones are gradually introduced.  No need to make your little one stay still – we encourage them to get up and move as much as they need to or take a break and come back when they hear their favorite song.  Do what works for your family!

Our Storytime schedule will change frequently this season to accommodate a variety of schedules. Each Storytime will require a separate registration. Please register your child for the one Storytime each week that best fits your schedule. Registration will open one week prior to the event. Space is limited. All Storytime participants agree to abide by library policies and procedures.

Storytimes are 25-30 minutes long and are filled with books, songs, fingerplays, rhymes, puppets and more – a different variety each week.  Family units (adult and child) will sit together and spaced apart from other family units. Please feel free to bring a blanket or mat to sit on, just like we did outside! These Storytimes will be held in the Community Room.
