    For ages 0-1.  Families with very young children are welcome to join us for a literacy based storytime series where we provide parents with hands-on experience to nurture their child’s early development by exposing them to language and books. During each session, parents will learn about the six early literacy skills using books, songs, rhymes, and movement exercises. It is strongly recommended that each baby has their parent’s attention, and, if your child has siblings, please make childcare arrangements or have another adult accompany them. No registration is required. Once a month on a Saturday at 2pm.
