Online registration is available.

Other events include the Little Scientists story group. The 9:30 a.m. event allows three to five year olds to take part in science based stories and experiments. The event requires advanced registration which can be handled online using the child’s own library card.

Another event will be at 10:30 a.m. to use the gross motor skills of two to five year old children. They could include balance beam, stepping stones, bikes, parachute, rockers, hula hoops and jumping games. Caregivers are invited to join but children must register in advance.
