Community Playtime is open play for families; we set out toys and early literacy activities for infants, toddlers, and preschoolers to enjoy with their grownups. A great opportunity for kids to play with different toys, and for grownups to chat with other grownups! No registration required, although the play space is small.

Move, Rattle & Shake is a half hour of fun! All ages are welcome, but kids up to age 6 will enjoy it most. We start with a fun story, then dance, sing, and laugh while using gross motor skills and practicing socialization - but as far as the kids know, it’s just a dance party at the library! Registration is required, with a maximum of 30 children.
MESS (Marvelous Explorations in Stories and Science) is for children ages 3-5 and their grownups. Prepare to get messy in this 30-minute introduction to basic STEAM principles! We read a story and then do hands-on science experiments designed to help kids get excited about science, technology, engineering, art and math - with their grownups at their side. Registration is required, with a maximum of 15 children.
MESS (Marvelous Explorations in Stories and Science) is for children ages 5-8 and their grownups. Prepare to get messy in this 30-minute introduction to basic STEAM principles!

Let's Get Artsy is taught in two age groups 5-7 and 8-11. The classes alternate weekly for both age groups. Check back in each month for more information about the classes. Registration opens the 25th of every month for available programs.
Bouncing Babies is for children from birth through age two and their grownups.* In this 20-minute storytime, we’ll read just one or two books, but sing lots of songs while grownups play and bond with their child - learning fun songs, rhymes, bounces, and activities they can do at home, too! Registration is required, with a maximum of 10 children. * If an older sibling needs to attend, we ask that they bring a stuffed animal or doll to use while they participate in the activities and songs.
Toddler Time: ABCs and 123s (previously called Wiggle Worms) is for children ages 2 or 3 who have outgrown the baby story time, but aren’t quite ready for Preschool Pals. This 20-minute storytime has a basic early preschool curriculum and covers a number, color, or letter of the alphabet; we read one or two books and sing lots of songs, with plenty of opportunities for both kids and their grownups to get some wiggles out. Registration is required, with a maximum of 20 children.
Crafternoon is a weekly craft activity in the Library for ages 4-8. Parents, caregivers or guardians please be prepared to help your child(ren) create this project.
