Babies and Books

Wednesdays at 10:30am

Join Ms. Lisa for Babies & Books! Our Winter Session begins January 10, 2018. We gather at 10:30am in the Children’s Program Room.  You and your baby will have fun and they gain early literacy skills as we read, sing, dance, and play. This program is geared for children birth – 18 months.  Registration is recommended, but not necessary.


Mondays and Thursdays at 10:30am

Books, rhymes, and movement for toddlers and preschoolers. Storytime includes early literacy activities and practices based on the read, talk, sing, play, and write model from Every Child Ready to Read.

Move to the Music

Movement and fun for kids. We’ll dust off the CD player and lead the fun with scarves, shakers, and the parachute. Dress comfortably and be ready to groove!
