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!
