Toddlers (2 year olds) meet on Tuesdays at 11 am.
Preschoolers (3-5 year olds) meet on Wednesdays at 11 am.

Check out Miss Kelly's Storytime & Library Programming Blogs:
These blogs are intended to be a resource for parents. Miss Kelly hopes that by sharing literacy promoting activities that take place at storytime as well as information about what's new and exciting at the library with parents and their children, this will encourage the continuation of these activities at home.
