Wednesday, May 13, 2015, 10:30 - 11:30 a.m.

During this hour we always enjoy music, sing silly songs, play exciting learning games, and make simple crafts for you to take home and enjoy. Day care, pre-school, and home school groups are always welcome. It is a perfect time to meet new friends and learn about all the great books the library has to offer.

Story Time begins each Wednesday morning at 10:30 and is perfect 6 months to 4 years old. The library strives to help you make sure your toddler is reading ready for school so come in and join us in some learning fun!

This week's theme: Up, Down, All Around
