Your Never Too Young To Join the Library

The library is for everyone including our youngest patrons.  Help get your little one on the right track to enjoy the benefits that the library has to offer and a lifelong love of reading.  You can get your baby their own library card to check out those board books, baby magazines like Baby Bug and Wild Animal Baby, music CDs for playtime and lullabies for nap time and parents can check out lots of good resources for parenting and DVDs.  Don't forget to plan a visit when we have special programs just for them.   Every Wednesday at 2:00 pm is Baby Book Time, a lapsit program that gets them laughing and learning with the Children's Librarian.  Come check us out.
