Changes Coming to Children’s Storytime Offerings

Registration for fall storytime sessions begins September 1st and runs through the end of the month.  Many programs are currently offered on a drop-in basis, and sign-up when required is now done online (check for details).

When fall programs start on September 30th, there will be a number of changes to the line-up.

Mother Goose (for birth-2) remains a drop-in program but will move to an earlier time on Tuesdays, with sessions at 9:30 or 10:30 AM starting in October.

After decades of showing book-based short films, the venerable Friday Flicks will be replaced this fall by Musical Storytime with Ann on Fridays at 11:00 AM.  This drop-in program for ages 2 and up will feature songs and stories from Ann Victor.  Ann has a BA in Music and is completing her Masters in Library Science this fall.  She is responsible for ordering and preparing our children’s materials and adding them to the catalog, and she looks forward to spending time with the youngsters who enjoy the end product of this work.

Also new this fall will be yoga classes for grades K-2 in October and grades 3-5 in November. And of course, there are plenty of special programs and old favorites on tap as well.
