The Knoxville Library offers programs appealing to everyone from toddlers to teens this winter.

"Terrific Tales for Toddlers," for children ages 1-3 with a caregiver, are scheduled for every other Wednesday at 10:30 a.m. Upcoming dates are February 2, 16, March 2, 16 and 30.

Stories, rhymes and age-appropriate activities are part of this program which introduces children to the excitement of reading. Caregiver participation is a vital part of this program. Register in advance so materials and giveaways can be prepared for those who attend.
