We have an App for that!

Ms. Nora is doing something new at Toddler Storytime. Every first Tuesday, in addition to the awesome stories she tells, there will be iPad activities.  Sometimes, these will be activities for the parents and children to do together. Sometimes, the stories will come from the iPad. Either way, it’s a new way to bring stories and reading to our children.  If you enjoy the apps that are used, you can get them for your own iPad.  Or come in and check out an iPad with your library card to use in the library for 2 hours. Toddler time is every Tuesday at 10:30 am in our meeting room. See you there!abc go app picture
