Toddler Story Time Changes

Our Toddler Time Story Time, for ages 18 to 36 months, is bursting at the seams! To provide the best possible programs for children, we are adding more sessions to Toddler Time. Registration will be required, and those families are set for that session for 4 weeks. Library staff will close registration once 15 families have signed up to come.

Did you miss the session that you wanted to sign up and attend? Come to our preschool story time, the Read Aloud Crowd, on Thursdays at 10:30 am. Plus, register for the next upcoming set of sessions; families turned away from the first block of story times get priority in the second block.

We will continue to offer our other story times as drop-in style programs. We ask families to attend one story time per week to keep our attendance low and our quality high.

For questions please contact Linda Gray at or by calling (903) 593-7323.
