- Story Time is a 45 minute session for children ages 3 1/2 to 6 years old. We tell stories, sing, and do fingerplays. The children do a craft the last ten minutes with the help of their parents. This class is offered 4 times a year. Please call the library for more information.
- 1000 Books Before Kindergarten: This is a great reading program. Stop by the library for your 1,000 Books Before Kindergarten journal, and your starting information. As you finish each set of 250 books, you will receive a prize and once all 1,000 have been read, your child’s name will be “drawn” on our Rainbow Wall. Check out the program information (1000Books).
We also have various other children’s programs during the year and a welcoming children’s area where children can play, have computer time, and read.
