SATURDAY MORNING STORYTIMES
Safety guidelines make it so that we cannot hold our storytimes at the usual time at the library (Saturday morning at 9:30). We know that this activity is appreciated by our community and we are committed to finding a way to continue offering it.
We are always looking for qualified and enthusiastic storytime volunteers. Note that any volunteer working with children at the library will be required to obtain standard police clearance. Bilingual candidates with early childhood education experience preferred. Contact the library for details.
