Beginning October 27, we're hosting live, in-person Outdoor Family Storytime. This 30-minute program is designed for young children and their caregivers to build on early learning foundations that develop pre-reading skills and a joy of reading that lasts a lifetime. Families are invited to join us for songs, rhymes and stories at this outdoor program at select community parks and library greenspaces.

Join us on Facebook Live every Tuesday and ​Thursday from 10:30 to 11 a.m.
