Encouraging our older babies, toddlers and pre-schoolers to interact with books in a library setting is our primary goal. The enjoyment of simple programs of library stories, games and songs, along with other children in their age groups, is an important part of sharing and learning. Story times are designed to encourage reading readiness. We hope you will check out library materials and share the stories and activities at home.
