Events for Kids
Baby Bookworms: This storytime is for families with very young babies through the age of 24 months. Simple songs and rhymes are followed by a book, especially for our youngest patrons! Following the directed portion of the program, caregivers are invited to stay and play with toys, read books, and listen to music with their babies and friends.
Toddler Time: Our story time for toddlers, aged two and three years, includes a range of fun activities including books, puppets, finger plays, songs, and movement for perfect wiggly toddlers.
Preschool Story Time: Preschoolers aged three to five years will enjoy books, songs, and a whole range of fun activities. Immediately following this, families are invited to join us in the craft room for a craft they can complete together.

Summer Reading Club (SRC) is our way of encouraging everyone to read together all summer long – in whatever form that takes! It could be audiobooks, eBooks, graphic novels, picture books, or chapter books – we love them all! Kids win prizes at certain milestones and special events are held throughout the summer.
WordPlay Writers' Club for 4–12 graders provides a weekly meeting place for young authors who are interested in honing their creative writing skills. Writers receive writing prompts, discuss tips and tricks, and have fun sharing the projects they have been working on.
