Children start their learning journey at the Library. Visit all Library branches to find board books, music to check out, and a welcoming space for your baby or toddler to play and learn.
Storytimes help parents foster a lifelong love of books and reading in their children. Storytime is not only fun for children, but also informative and engaging for the parents who attend with them. Different storytimes focus on different age groups, but every storytime helps children and parents bond by participating in healthy, enriching activities together. Joining storytime is a fun way to introduce your children to the Library and to teach Early Literacy Skills.
If you are planning to bring a group, please contact the library ahead of time to confirm there is enough space.
