We think we can do better. That’s why we employ an Early Literacy Outreach Librarian. She provides free, early literacy-boosting story times, kits and guidance. Have your childcare provider reach out to her!

We offer story times each week at all of our branches. We aren’t just reading…our librarians are early literacy enthusiasts! The kids listen, craft, dance and learn to love the written word. Join us!
