Early Childhood   

These programs provide a good opportunity for young children to be exposed to PA Early Learning Standards and are a good opportunity for parents and grandparents to interact. Younger and older children may attend either program. Call the library for more information.                               


Recommended for: ages 18 months-5 years; Mondays @ 10:30am; Saturdays @ 10:30am (except last Saturday of the month). 1/22-3/26

Toddlers and preschool-age kids are in for some fun with weekly-themed stories, songs, and a simple craft; along with free play. This is a fun, positive way to introduce young children to a group environment. Siblings are welcome. Please register.
