A.S.K.: After School Kids

This is a hands-on program for big kids! Each week we will rotate through a different activity, including STEM projects, arts, crafts, and other kinds of fun.

Baby & Me

Mondays @ 10:30 am (Ages 0-18 months)

This is a lapsit storytime designed with little ones in mind. Each month we’ll have a new book and rhymes to enjoy together while you spend one-on-one time with your baby. Stay for a play time afterwards.

Older siblings are welcome; they should bring a baby doll or stuffed animal for their “baby!”

Preschool Pals

Thursdays @ 10:30 am (Ages 4-6)

Preschool Pals is an educational storytime and activity for children ages 4-6 only. Each week we’ll work on a letter of the alphabet, practice writing skills, and read books together. 

Caregivers may drop off their child for this program, as long as they stay in the library.


Tuesdays & Fridays @ 10:30 am (all ages welcome)

Our most popular library program! We’ll read stories, sing songs, play with puppets, make crafts, and more.
