Help the Library better serve you!

January isn't just a time for people to try to figure out what they can do better. Libraries like to do it too! Help us to better serve you this year by letting us know what your favorite programs of the year were. On our list below are some of our best attended programs of 2018. Let us know what you loved, and if there are other programs we did that you liked, let us know by writing them in! We'll try to take that information to do more of what our community loved as we plan our programs this year.

January Story Times at Northwest Branch Library

The Northwest Branch Library offers regular story times for our youngest customer. Story time is an excellent way to bond with your child, boost their vocabulary, and hopefully raise a lifelong reader. Studies have shown that regularly reading to your child can increase their attention span, boost their emotional intelligence, and flex their imagination. Story time programs include Baby Giggles & Baby Wiggles, Toddler Time, and Preschool Story Time. Join us for stories, songs, finger plays and playtime. Please be sure to pick up a ticket at Reference Desk 30 minutes in advance.
