Parents, caregivers, and children, looking for something fun to do that won't break your budget?  Please join us at Crosby Branch Library for Storytime.  Preschool Storytime, for ages 3 to 6 years, is on Tuesday at 10:30 am.  Babytime for infants and toddlers is on Thursday at 10:30 am.  This week, young children enjoyed a special Spring activity.  After listening to stories, they went outside to collect colorful eggs.  We had refreshments and goodie bags, and were entertained by seasonal music on our branch ipad.
