StarsTwinkly stars, falling stars, making a wish upon a star, it is all about stars this  Wednesday, May 11 at 10:30 AM or 11:00 AM for Toddler Time at Katherine Tyra @ Bear Creek Library. Come sing and read about those magical lights peeking down at us each night.


Toddler Time is a program for children from 18 months to 3 years of age.  This is a ticketed program. Free tickets are available at the information desk starting at 10:00 AM on the day of the program.

Our library is still in the midst of being painted and the fumes are still very noticeable in the library.

Preschool Storytime: Colors

Join us on Tuesday, May 10th at 10:30 AM for a colorful Preschool Storytime! Because of the ongoing painting process in our building, we will be meeting in the children’s picture book section instead of the meeting room. Tuesday’s 11:15 session of Infant Time will also meet in the children’s section.

There are still parts of the building that are being repainted. If you or your child are allergic or sensitive to paint fumes, please take this into consideration when deciding whether to attend storytime at our branch tomorrow.

Thank you all so much for your flexibility and understanding the past few weeks!
