Parents may attend, if needed, to help transition their child to this program. All parents must remain in the children's department. Storytimes will be held in the Friends Activity Room starting Monday, November 5 through Friday, December 14. Please pick a Monday OR a Friday session. Registration begins October 23.

Note: There will be no preschool storytime on Friday, Nov. 23 as the library will be closed that day.
