Storytime begins on Tuesday! Sept. 1st at 10:30am

preschool-storytime-300x120-224x120Join us for Preschool Storytime on the 1st and 3rd Tuesday of each month at 10:30am, beginning in September.

Some of you may remember that we ran a survey last year in the hope of discovering what we could do to increase attendance to our Storytimes.  Responses showed a clear majority preferred storytime on Tuesday mornings at the library, twice a month.

So, we started offering storytime on the 1st and 3rd Tuesday of each month last winter.  And this schedule change did bring some new folks in to enjoy storytime on a regular basis!   We hope you all will come back and join us this school year and that others will join us, too!
