Babytime – Tuesdays at 10:00am in the Creswell Library
Join us on Tuesdays for songs, fingerplays, lap bounces, scarves, egg shakers, stories, and bubbles! This storytime is 20 minutes long so we can wrap up before the littlest get too squirmy.

Feel free to come to Baby Storytime and then stay for this fun playtime, or just drop in! We will put out some toys during this 45-minute playtime. Suggested ages 1-3, older siblings welcome.

May Reads for June Book Club
Book Club for Kids met to chat about "Lexi Magill and the Teleportation Tournament" on 5/2 at 4pm via Zoom. Our next book is "Hoot". We will chat about this dynamic adventure on 6/6 at 4pm. Read more about the book from the publisher.
Hoot features a new kid and his new bully, alligators, some burrowing owls, a renegade eco-avenger, and several extremely poisonous snakes.
Everybody loves Mother Paula's pancakes. Everybody, that is, except the colony of cute but endangered owls that live on the building site of the new restaurant. Can the awkward new kid and his feral friend prank the pancake people out of town? Or is the owls' fate cemented in pancake batter?
de, this interactive read won't disappoint!
