School-Aged Children Library Events
Twice a month the students of the Story School come to the library for Story Time, Craft Activities, to learn Library Skills and to check out books! Home schooled children are more than welcome to join us and oftentimes do!
We usually meet the first and third Fridays of each month from 12:30-1:30. Sometimes, however, we need to switch to a different Friday because of school or library schedule conflicts. Because the exact dates are subject to change, please feel free to call the library to check the schedule!
Pre-School Story Times
Our Pre-school story time is every Wednesday from 3:00-3:45 pm.
Each week we choose several books to read to the kids and then we have a craft or art activity! All children and their care givers are welcome to join us!
