Wondering how to spend a rainy day or some time off of school?  Our toys and puzzles are back out in the Jessica Hay Toddler area.  We have Duplo, our train table, baby dolls, a variety of animals, puzzles, and more for you and your child to enjoy!  It's a great way to enjoy some one on one time playing before you pick up your new stash of library books.

A Note to Parents & Caregivers

Storytime is not just for kids! Our Storytimes are designed to demonstrate to parents how to teach early literacy skills. Please sit with your child and participate even if your child is shy. Children learn by example, and you are their best role model. We do not expect rapt silent attention. If your child does become disruptive, feel free to leave the room together and return when he/she has calmed down.

Snacks and drinks will not be allowed during storytimes because of Covid restrictions.  Thank you for your understanding and helping keep our patrons safe.
