On Tuesday mornings at 11:30 a.m., now through March 12, parents and/or caregivers with children ages 2-5 can explore stories and take part in Family Storytime. These 30-40 minute programs are designed to promote language and listening skills, expand their imaginations and self-image and arouse their curiosity about the world around them.
A simple craft activity reinforces the stories each week. While the program is geared toward 2-5 year olds, all are welcome.
Saturday, Feb. 16 at 11:00 a.m., is the date for the library’s annual Tea Party for children ages 3-8.

Registration is required for this special event.
On Tuesday evening, Feb. 19 from 5 to 7 p.m. they will celebrate Black History Month with a performance by storyteller/musician Amir Rashidd, a musical craft for all ages, and snacks invented by African American chef George Crum. This program is for all ages.
