Wiggles & Giggles Storytime Tuesday at 10:00am.

Storytime is for children ages birth and up and their caregivers.  This is a great way to foster early literacy, an early love of libraries, parent interaction, and socialization. Wiggles & Giggles is designed to focus on early literacy and incorporates music, puppetry, picture books, nursery rhymes, art, play, and language. Currently, due to COVID-19 our storytime is online via Facebook Live.  Be sure to Like us on Facebook to join in every week!
