In-person storytimes have returned! Hello Baby! (advanced registration required), Outdoor All Ages Storytime, and Wednesday All Ages Storytime (tickets required) are in person. However, we recognize that some patrons may prefer a virtual storytime so our Thursday and PJ storytimes are still virtual. For a current schedule of our storytimes and information on how to register or pick up tickets, please visit the Storytimes page.
NOTE: There are no drop-in storytimes the week of May 16 as we plan more great storytimes and visit our local schools.
Watch for our new storytime line-up that begins in June!
Grow a Garden
Help us grow a garden in May. Stop by the Children's Department desk to pick up the materials. Decorate a flower or a butterfly for our spring garden on the Children's Department windows.

A limited supply of crafts will be available in the Children's Department to pick up to complete at home. One craft will for younger kids and one for older kids (more manual dexterity required). Additional supplies may be necessary. Limit one craft per child.
