Rhythm & Rhyme Storytime: A 20-minute lapsit storytime featuring developmentally appropriate board books, rhymes, and movement encouraging early literacy for infants 0-18 months. If children can walk steadily, then we suggest Family Storytime. Caregivers also learn valuable information on how to continue building literacy at home. 
Family Storytime: For children of all ages who can actively engage. This interactive storytime with books, music, and movement is a high engagement storytime that instills the love of literacy and the Library at an early age. Caregivers also learn valuable information on how to continue building literacy at home. Thursday is a repeat of Wednesday’s program.
Bricks & Books: Use toy building bricks to complete different challenges based on books. This program is for school age students 10-18.
