For each of the Sensory Storytimes we pick a theme, read books related to the theme, present songs, do fingerplays/rhymes and play games related to the subject.

We love to see so many babies and their families attend our Lapsit program.

And we see that you love coming to the library too!

We want to give attention to all who come to our very special program.  And because of the steady increase of attendance, we will be adding a second Baby Storytime.

Our first program will be at the same time: Tuesdays at 10:00 am and the second one at 10:30 am.

These programs will be ticketed to alleviate any confusion.  Tickets can be picked up at the desk.

See you there!
