Weekly Newsletter ~ September 26, 2012

Do you have 18 month – 5 year olds at your house?  Join us on Thursday evenings for our Toddler Time from 6:00 p.m. to 6:20 p.m. (18 mo. – 3 yr.) with their parents or caregiver for an interactive story time designed just for this age group.  Story Time then begins at 6:30 for our 3 year – 5 year olds for a half hour program just for them.  We ask that their parents or caregivers please stay in the library for the duration of the program.  Older siblings are encouraged to come along for the program if they are in the library as well.  At both of these programs, we sing, dance, and share the love of reading.  Sometimes we do crafts projects as well if the story lends itself to a fun project.
