Tuesday, February 20

WeeRead is a multi-aged story time for children and their caregivers.  We will share songs & stories, learn rhymes - both old and new, and shake our sillies out with lively music.  Each story time will end with a puppet show and a rhyme to take home. This story time lasts 25 minutes.  We recognize that story time is a learned experience and that 25 minutes may be a bit too long for our littlest friends.  Please come for whatever amount of time works for you and your child.  You are welcome to slip out and come back either in a few minutes or another time. We are prepared to keep things flexible so that kids of every age will have a fun story time experience!

All programs are sensory friendly.  Everyone is welcome and celebrated.  There is no right way to join in!  For specific information about any program, call (920) 886-6335, or email youthdesk@neenahlibrary.org.
