Have fun, be creative! Encourage a love of reading. Crafts, songs and fingerplays too!
Join us for our entertaining early-literacy storytimes. Enjoy books, songs, rhymes and more! Stick around for a short playtime.
Two year olds and caregivers.
Thursdays are all about toddlers, so grab your two year old and join in the fun. Each week, we will have stories, rhymes and activities that are sure to keep your little one learning and having fun. There will be plenty of time to interact with other children, practice pre-reading readiness skills, play and create a simple craft related to the stories. After the program, be sure to check out books, music, and early learning kits to enjoy at home.
