The Young & The Restless Story Time – Mondays @ 10:00 am

Our youngest patrons and their caregivers are welcomed to enjoy the library with movement, songs, stories, & snacks!

Tinker Tuesdays – released Tuesdays at 10:00 am

Craft, create, and tinker with us each week! Just stop by the library to pickup a kit for each participating child – it contains everything you will need to get started including video tutorials and stories! This program is specifically for kids in Kindergarten through Sixth Grade, and the contents of the kit will vary depending on the current series being offered (e.g. “Art in Nature” or “DIY – Do It Yourself”).

Friday Movie Day

One Friday a month from 3:45 to 5:45 we share a great family friendly movie (rated G to PG-13) and welcome all!
