Selected topics vary by age but includes “Fantastic Flashlight Forts,” “All about Dinosaurs” and “Mysterious Tales” among others.

    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.
