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 25-30 minutes.  We recognize that story time is a learned experience and that 30 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!

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!
