Drop-in Storytimes & Other Programs for Littles


Storytimes occur in sessions throughout the school year. Programs are subject to cancellation for the following reasons: School closings or delays, absent program coordinators. *Regular Storytimes do not run during the summer. 

Each program is geared towards a certain age group, but older and younger siblings are welcome to attend. Registration is not required. Please visit our Event Calendar or the Kids & Family Programs page for upcoming programs. 




Parents Please Note: 
Children ages 10 and under must be accompanied by an adult. Under no circumstances should a child be left unattended in the Children's Room, while the adult is in another part of the building. If your child is attending a program that does not require a caregiver to be present, you must remain in the building at all times should an emergency arise. Please read the Library's Unattended Children policy for more information.
