Parent & Tot (ages 24-36 months) is an introductory Early Literacy Class designed to increase children’s comfort level with books and the written word.

Story Time (ages 3-5) is a transitional Early Literacy Class designed to continue children’s comfort level with books and promote independence at the Library.

Story Stretchers (ages 5-7) is an advanced Early Literacy Class designed to increase independence at the Library and promote learning through books. Children read together, play more advanced literacy games and make a crafty art project. Children attend class on their own.
