At least one child in each group must be age 3-5, but siblings may also attend.

The same stories, songs and activities will be presented on Tuesday and Thursday each week.  Please choose just one day per week to attend to allow more families to participate.

Special Themes:

April 25 and 27: National Library Week

Space is limited. Please pick up a ticket starting at 12:30 p.m. at the Children's Desk.

Please note that this program will be held indoors. 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.
