We offer storytimes for babies, toddlers, and preschoolers each week at both locations.  

Baby Lapsit Storytime is a program built especially for babies from birth to 18 months and their caregivers. This storytime includes 15 minutes of songs, fingerplays, and lap games. The baby storytime will feature the same songs and activities every week; this repetition of rhymes and songs forms a foundation for learning for your baby and strengthens the language connections in the brain.  

Toddler Storytime (ages 18 months to 3 years) and Preschool Storytime (ages 3 to 5 years) feature 20-30 minutes of stories, rhymes, songs, fingerplays, and other activities designed for children and their caregivers.  

Room capacity is limited. We offer free tickets at the Youth Services desk beginning an hour before storytime. All storytimes begin at 10 a.m.
