Family Place

Families with children from birth to 5 years old are welcome to join us in the Children’s Department for an informal program where adults can meet and socialize while children play with educational toys and STEM building materials. The program will conclude as we gather in a circle to hear stories and sing songs.

Book Babies – How Do I Love You?

This Valentine’s Day program features books, songs, and nursery rhymes showing the unlimited love parents and grandparents feel for their children. Nursery rhymes are great for group chanting and singing, as the tune makes the rhyme easier to remember.  Especially for children from birth to 24 months.
