Ongoing Events in November
Visit our online calendar for more information and to register for these events.
Read with a Librarian
Sign up to have a librarian read with your child. Depending on your child's age and reading ability your child might want to only be read to OR they may read to us!  This a great opportunity to gain reading confidence and encourage a love for reading.
Once you register we will be in touch with you by Sunday evening to schedule a time that works best for your schedule between 9am-12pm. You may also select books on Hoopla for practicing readers so that a librarian may follow along (that is optional).
This program is best for Toddlers/Preschooler through age 9.
Mondays virtually on Ring Central from 9 AM-12 PM.
Family Storytime
