Prepare your child for school with our preschool storytime designed for children ages 3-5 and their parent or caregiver. Entertaining stories increase a child’s vocabulary and ability to focus while activities and crafts help them practice fine motor skills. This program also provides a safe, fun environment for children to improve their social skills.
BabyTime is our program of songs, rhymes, books, toys, movement, and fun designed for children ages 0 – 2 and their parent or caregiver. This interactive program is a great opportunity to introduce early literacy skills while bonding and playing with your little one.

Our library staff is always happy to help you find books and materials and make suggestions for your reading. Our PINES system allows you to place electronic holds for specific titles, and you can also call us at the library to assist you with this.
We also have a wonderful collection of electronic resources available for all ages. This includes our reading challenge program, Beanstack which allows you to keep a record of books read, time read, and more. Children 0-5 can take part of 1000 Books Before Kindergarten program through Beanstack. Children 5 and older can track their favorite reads on the Best Reading List Ever Challenge. In addition to these ongoing challenges, we also have seasonal ones as well
These lists, published annually, are great tools for finding new books for children of all ages.
