Crafts, reading books and just being silly are part of Storytime for children ages 3-5. Mark your calendars for each Tuesday at 10:30 am and for Babytimes on Thursdays at 10:30. Don't miss the fun!

Ms Mary's grandson, Benjamin visits the library from Arizona. He points out things, chooses his books and supervises their check out. He also visited story time. It was lots of fun to have Benjamin visit us at the library.
