Babies and parents are invited for a special series aimed at enhancing your child’s natural love of language, song, rhythm, rhyme and movement. You and your baby will enjoy singing, dancing, bouncing, clapping, and reciting nursery rhymes. Sometimes we even get to read a book together. This program is free and open to kids and families of all ages, not just babies. No sign-up is necessary.Stay afterwards for bubbles, fun baby toys, and to mingle with other parents.
Children, ages 2 to 5, with a parent or caregiver, are welcome to Little Crafters Storytime every Monday and Friday at 10:30 am in the Children’s Storytime Room. Listen to a story and stay for a simple craft based on that book. Free! No registration necessary.
As a courtesy to others and because of the craft activity, please no daycare groups at this storytime. Groups are welcome to come to the Tuesday or Wednesday storytimes.
Like the Prince Siddhartha, Nicholas Vreeland walked away from a worldly life of privilege to pursue the Buddhist ideal. Once a promising photographer, he moved to India and became a Tibetan monk. Years later, he returns to photography to help his community of monks.
