Games and storytimes for young kids and families

Posted on August 27, 2018 at 6:00 am

We share stories and play together so that young kids build the skills they need to get ready for and succeed in school. Kids learn best when learning is fun. Let’s have some fun!

Touch-a-Fire-Truck Storytime
In this storytime, you’ll hear stories about fire trucks, meet firefighters from your local fire department, learn valuable safety tips, and get a chance to touch a fire truck. Fire truck visits are subject to availability. Please be aware that the trucks are scheduled for storytime, but in the event of a call, an emergency takes priority.

For all ages: Kids 8 and under must bring an adult.

Games + Family = Fun
