Storytimes and Virtual Storytimes

Storytime on the Lawn

Storytimes are expanding! We are moving family storytimes outside for the summer and adding new days and times to our lineup. Stories, songs and action rhymes at family storytimes are appropriate for ages 6 and under. A "Take & Make" craft will be supplied after the storytime. We'll be meeting on the libraries' lawns. We encourage you to bring hats, sunscreen and your own seating.
