Kid's Events


Every Wednesday at 11:30 a.m. (No Storytime on September 23rd in observance of Yom Kippur)

Our friends at PJ Library, which does these song & storytimes, designed for tots, toddlers, and those looking after them, at a few select bookstores here in the area, begin to do so here today. These are free and open to all, and are usually thirty minutes of good fun, activity, and exploration of language, movement, and rhythm. Please join us!
