Families with young children looking for a fun way to experience stories and songs can join us for outdoor Wings of Wonder Storytime. Together with a Youth Librarian, build early literacy skills in a welcoming environment through meaningful stories and connection. Encourage a love of language and reading while practicing listening and cooperative tasks.

All storytimes take place near our Wings of Wonder butterfly garden in the rear of the library so bring a blanket and a sun umbrella, if you wish. No sun tents, please. In case of inclement weather, storytime will be cancelled. Please note that the storytime will be between 20-30 minutes and WILL NOT be followed by an open play time.

Due to an abundance of caution and continued physical distancing, this program REQUIRES REGISTRATION and space is limited. Registering one person from your family secures a "family circle" for up to 4 people.
