The Youth Services Department added two new styles of Story Packs to our collection.

Baby Packs include all materials necessary for a storytime at home for children up to 24 months of age.

SEL (Social Emotional Learning) Packs are designed to make a family’s journey of healing easier to navigate following a traumatic experience. Topics include loss of a pet, divorce/separation, and moving.

Additional subjects will be added in the future. Both styles of packs are available now for checkout in Youth Services.

As always, check our calendar or the the April/May Almanac to see exciting programming available for all ages!

You can also see our programming specifically for children here.
