Ages 0–2: Introduce your infant or toddler to new books, experiences, and skills while you strengthen your bond with them at Tiny Tot Time! In this group setting, your child will interact with children their age, learn to listen to others as a librarian reads to them, and strengthen their hands through fingerplays, shakers, and scarves. You will also discover tips for how to build these skills at home. After storytime, you and your child can spend an additional half hour socializing with other parents and their children!
