Until we can safely provide in-person storytimes again, we're hosting live, virtual storytimes via Zoom every Wednesday at 10:00am. These storytimes cycle through three of our most popular storytimes:

Preschool Storytime is our most "traditional" storytime designed with ages 3-6 in mind. We sing songs, move and rhyme, and of course read lots of stories. Preschool storytime has a wide scope, featuring myrid topics and formats. You never know what you'll find in storytime each week! This storytime is presented primarily in English.
Art & Science Storytime is a more advanced storytime designed with preschool and early elementary ages in mind. Often there will be a corresponding take-home activity participants can pick up during the library's curbside pickup service (Monday through Saturday, 1:00 - 3:00 pm). This storytime is presented primarily in English.
Cuentos is a bilingual, all-ages storytime. The target audience is all families with preschool to elementary school aged children. While presented in both Spanish and English, you only need to understand one of the languages to fully enjoy this wonderful storytime. Librarian Kristen highlights books from Spanish-speaking countries, authors, and artists as well as cultural traditions.
Acompáñenos para Cuentos bilingües para familias. Leemos libros en español e inglés, hacemos actividades bilingües, y cantamos canciones bilingües. Este evento virtual es perfecto para familias con niños preescolares igual a niños que asisten la escuela primaria. Leemos libros de países hispanohablantes y compartimos tradiciones culturales.

Because the Library is in City Hall, we are working with other City departments to determine safe protocols for reopening fully. We want to ensure that we are following state guidelines in order to help put an end to the spread of the virus and to protect library staff and the public. We will be sharing information about reopening as soon as we have a plan to do so safely.
