Toddler Family Place:
Tuesdays from 10-11 am with Miss Kathy- a workshop series for children (birth to 3 years) and their caregivers.  The Children’s Story Room will be transformed into a Toyland, where children can play with the toys and other children their age while caregivers socialize with other parents, grandparents, or babysitters.  A very short picture book is read, nursery rhymes are acted out, and songs are sung.  REGISTRATION IS REQUIRED!

Mother Goose Story Time:
Wednesdays and Fridays at 10 am with Miss Sharon.  For children ages 6 months to 4 years, activities include nursery rhymes, songs, and finger play.  Older siblings may come along, no reservations required!  Join us for a lively movement–oriented session which features dance, song, and, of course, a story!!
