Children’s Corner

Our library provides a variety of Storytimes and special programs.

In spring, summer, and fall, come see our Storybook Walk behind the library!  In the summer, join our Summer Reading Program for rewards, grab-n-go kits, prizes and free books.  Check out our Facebook project and Craft Adventure posts to find fun ideas for the whole family!

We currently offer a combination of in-person outdoor and virtual storytimes!

Wednesday Morning Storytimes at 10 AM – IN PERSON, OUTDOORS

Each day we will look, listen, sing, move, and encourage a lifetime love of reading!  Craft bags will be distributed to be taken home.  Space is limited, so pre-register each week with Ms. Sue at susandstern@gmail.com. Check our calendar for upcoming dates.

Monday After-School Storytimes at 4 PM – VIRTUAL

We will explore a longer picture book by including song, humor and a demonstration of a related hands-on project!  For elementary ages and pre-schoolers with sustained attention spans.  Contact Ms. Sue at susandstern@gmail.com to receive a link. Check our calendar for upcoming dates.
