Children’s programming is the backbone of library services.  We offer four different storytimes throughout the week for various age groups, as well as special one-time events and our annual Summer Reading program.


Preschool storytime meets each Monday at 10:30 AM.  Join us for stories, songs, and silliness suitable for preschool children ages 3-5.

Family storytime meets each Tuesday at 6:30 PM.  This is a mixed-age group with stories, songs, and a craft suitable for all ages.

Books & Babies lapsit for children up to 24 months of age and their caregivers meets every Wednesday at 10:30 AM.  Janice will lead our youngest patrons in fingerplays, rhymes, and songs.

All storytimes take place in the children’s room.
