Wiggles & Giggles Storytime Wednesday at 11:00am.
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.
Dolly Parton’s Imagination Library is available in Allegany County. https://imaginationlibrary.com/ If you have questions regarding the program, contact Robin Fuller at Ardent Network at 585-648-6022.
