Storytime: Tuesdays and Wednesdays at 10 a.m. in our downstairs event room. A typical storytime includes Miss Val reading 2 – 3 books, 1 – 2 group songs or fingerplays, craft or activity, snack, and play table. Themes are based on the favorite themes of young patrons as well as seasonal and holiday themes throughout the year. Suggestions for future themes are welcome – take the poll here. Come see what we have planned for this week!
