Children ages 0-2. Infant story time! We welcome parents to come with their babies and listen to songs, nursery rhymes, and stories geared toward their age. The children may not yet be of speaking or walking age, but physical interaction is extremely important in the early stages of child development. The infant story time also allows for parents to start off their child’s habits right by coming to the Library each week. Due to young attention spans, this story time will last about 15 minutes. Tuesdays at 10:30 AM.

Children ages 2-5. Toddlers who are learning how to walk, talk, and sing will interact with the Library’s staff in order to start learning the foundations of their education. Moreover, we want to utilize some of today’s bestselling books to help them imagine, create, and grow. Each week, the story time will revolve around a largely popular book that teaches the children about colors, numbers, feelings, and so much more! Before the story time, staff will sing with the children many beloved childhood songs to create energy and excitement for the upcoming book! After the book, an appropriately-themed craft will be conducted to be sure the children work on their creativity and refine motor skills at a young age. We want to make sure each story time has enough time for stories, songs, and an easy craft. The story time should last about 35-40 minutes. Wednesdays at 10:30 AM.

Join us every Saturday morning from 10:00 AM - 12:00 PM for LEGOs @ the Library!
First we read a LEGO book, then we build with a new theme each time. Everyone is welcome to build. At the end of each session, everyone’s creations are put in the display case until the next LEGOs @ the Library so you can bring your friends and show them what you built. This come-and-go event requires no registration and you don’t have to bring your own bricks. We have plenty to share! Just show up at the Moeschle Room.
If you are interested in donating LEGOs, we are always grateful to accept donations. Just please bring them to the Children’s Department of the Library!
