Fall Storytimes

PLEASE NOTE that we have made some changes to our storytime schedule this season.  We thank everyone who filled out our storytime survey this summer; we have incorporated as much of your feedback as possible.  One of the biggest changes is registration is no longer required for any of our storytimes, but space may be limited.  We have also reorganized the various age groups a bit.  We encourage you to determine which storytime session is most appropriate for your child and family.  For some storytimes tickets will be handed out 15 minutes before the program begins.  Click the links below for more information about the different sessions.
