Children’s Take & Make Story Time Crafts
As we enter the cold weather months, Story Time is on hiatus until it is safe to gather inside. In the meantime, we are excited to offer Take & Make craft bags!
These bags contain everything you’ll need to create that week’s craft with your little ones. Check out a book and grab a bag for all the Story Time fun at home. There will be a new craft every week!
This is a Story Time for our youngest patrons! Tiny Tots is designed for babies and children up to 36 months.
There will be stories, songs, bubbles, and more!
Tiny Tots lasts about as long as their attention span–20 to 30 minutes.
Tiny Tots is currently on hiatus.
Bookworms is our Story Time designed for pre-school aged children.
There will be stories, songs, games, activities, and more!
Bookworms will last 45-60 minutes.

1,000 Books before Kindergarten
1,000 Books before Kindergarten is an early literacy program that gives children a head start by already having 1,000 books under their belt when they start kindergarten! This program rewards early readers with small prizes along the way. See our children’s librarian to sign up and start logging the books you read with your child today!
Already participating in 1,000 Books? Check out the new app!
Now it’s easier than ever to log the books you read with your child! Instead of keeping track of paper log sheets, you can document your progress in the app and just show it to the children’s librarian! Get more info here.
AWE Learning Computers
Our children’s department has two AWE Learning computers available for public use. These workstations are made just for kids and contain award-winning interactive early literacy and STEM/STREAM-aligned content. The computers are touchscreen but are also equipped with kid-sized keyboards.
AWE Learning computers and content are KidSafe seal certified and don’t access the internet, so you can feel secure knowing that your child is learning in a fun and safe environment. Be sure to check these stations out the next time you’re in the library! For more information about AWE Learning, head here.
