Baby Time – Every Tuesday Evening at 5:30pm Every Wednesday AND Friday Morning at 9:30am
Under 2 years old
Baby time is composed of a lot of fun songs, rhymes, and movement games to do any time with your baby! It’s also just a special time to work in a little one on one time before the busy day. Due to our large attendance numbers on Wednesday morning, I’ve added another Baby Time for Friday mornings! Please note that we try to provide baby time for our smallest friends so they have a safe space to explore. Wednesday and Friday 10am story times will be geared more for toddlers/preschool age with lots of movement and action!

Storytime – Every Wednesday AND Friday Morning at 10am
Suggested for Ages 2 – 5 years old
Join us every Wednesday and Friday morning for Story Time!  During story time we learn songs together and include lots of movement such as dancing, yoga, ASL, and more!  The stories are chosen with interaction in mind to hold children’s attention and get them excited about reading!  Come join us, we’d love to see you there 🙂

Saturday February 1 – National “Take Your Child to the Library” Day!
Launched in Connecticut in 2012, Take Your Child to the Library Day has blossomed into an international celebration with nearly 1,200 participating libraries from 49 states and 5 countries.
