Kid's Programs

The stories, games, finger plays, and activities used in story time are designed to foster a love of language and books, introduce standard works of literature for young children, provide your child with an early group experience, encourage an increased attention span, demonstrate new activities for you to enjoy with your child at home and provide a pleasant introductory experience to the library.
