Baby Brain Time

Wednesdays at 10am (next cycle begins January 3rd)

This is a brand new story time just for babies (under 18 months old) and their caregivers. 

Baby Brain Time focuses on the ABCs of early literacy: Attention, Bonding, & Communication. Caregivers will learn fun tips for helping their baby develop these early literacy skills while engaging with a variety of toys, books, and activities. 

Baby Brain Time is designed for one on one interaction (one parent to one child). Registration is requested, but walk-ins will be welcome if space and supplies permit.

See our calendar for more detailed information on story time cycle dates.

Family Movies

Each Saturday at 1pm the library hosts a family movie on the big screen. 

The first Saturday of each month is designated as our Teen Movie, with movies rated up to PG-13. Each subsequent week will have movies rated G or PG. Children and families are welcome at all movie showings. As always, children under 11 years of age must have a parent or guardian present in the building. 

We show newly released or seasonally appropriate movies. For information on which movie is showing, call the library at 845-794-4660.
