*CANCELED* Family Storytime

All ages are invited to a storytime where we will read, sing, and play. Children must be accompanied by an adult. We'll be celebrating "Take Your Child to the Library Day" on February 4.

Todas las edades están invitadas a una hora de cuentos donde leeremos, cantaremos y jugaremos. Los niños deben estar acompañados por un adulto. Cada dos sábados, a las 10:30, en la Biblioteca Burke. Celebraremos el "Día de llevar a su hijo a la biblioteca" el 4 de febrero.

While children ages 0-5 are now eligible for vaccines, the library is continuing to offer outdoor programming and is slowly phasing in indoor programming for all ages. Until it is determined to be safe for both staff and patrons, we will not offer maximum occupancy to indoor events. Indoor programming in meeting rooms will be phased in starting with 30% of maximum room occupancy for programs for children. Please arrive early to indoor programs as space is limited. Masks may be required at some indoor programs for all participants.

AGE GROUP: | Children | Ages 6-12 | Ages 0-5 |
