What will I experience at Lapsit Storytime with my 2 or 3 year old?  Expect to hear 3 or 4 age-appropriate books read, to dance - maybe with scarves or shaker eggs, and to learn some new finger rhymes.  You'll have an opportunity to meet Penelope the Puppet who loves Poetry, to guess what's in the Mystery Bag, and to watch a puppet show on the 'big' puppet stage.

Lapsit is a lively storytime with many short segments designed with the attention span of  2 and 3 year olds in mind.  

All programs are sensory friendly.  If a half hour of Lapsit is a bit too long for your child, 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 week!

Summer fun for ages 6 and up, no registration required.

Learn more about Monarch Butterflies with "Wild Ones".  Participants will learn about the life cycle of a monarch butterfly and what we can do in our own backyards to create important habitat for them.  Everyone will make a butterfly hand puppet after a 15-20 minute presentation and Q & A
