Kids and Teens

 

One of the most important things you can do for your child is read aloud for fifteen minutes a day. Our commitment is to make this project easy and interesting to both of you. We have a wide variety of age appropriate books that will make read aloud time a productive and valuable time for both you and your child. With the exception of our Storytime, all other classes have fees, a portion of which benefit the library.
