PreSchool Story Hours – Wednesdays during School Year

Each Wednesday morning from 10:30 to 11:30 preschoolers are invited to enjoy stories, songs, crafts, and other pre-literacy building activities at the library. Very young children and their even younger siblings learn about the magical place that is “the library.” Regular attendance at Story Hours shapes the way your child will always see and use the library. Stories are a wonderful way to explore and encourage social/emotional awareness. Story Hours are a great place to meet and make friends!

Pre-registration is required. Multiple copies of the month’s book are available at the library. Please note: The school calendar indicates some changes for Late Start Wednesdays.
