This class is for children under 30 months and a caregiver.

Tuesdays, 10:00 – 10:30 am  Starts the week of 5/4 – Ms. Neena

This is the morning session of this program -- we also meet in the afternoons at 3:30 PM

Our in-person, socially distanced classes will be held in the library courtyard, when the weather is good enough to meet. This program is designed especially for children two and under and their caregivers. Join us to learn new rhymes, read stories, and develop motor skills.

Pawling and Holmes residents can register here. Residents are given priority registration for these small group programs.

Non-residents can join our non-resident waiting list here. If space is available, non-residents will be welcomed in to the classes.

-------

Important facts about in-person events:  All participants older than two years old must wear a mask during in-person library events. While we recognize that it is difficult for young children to wear masks and distance from one another, families will be expected to maintain social distancing as much as possible by sitting in designated areas. Active games/bubbles will replace craft activities for these programs. These events are subject to be rescheduled or canceled if public health considerations become a cause for concern in our community. Strollers and picnic blankets welcome.
