Program Description

Smarty Pants Story Time

Hey Smarty Pants! Let's read books, sing songs, and have fun together this summer. This story time is again meeting in person on the Library's Patio with safety precautions in place. Hand sanitizer will be available, and we ask that you keep your mask on.  

In the case of inclement weather, the story time will be moved inside. Patrons can choose to register for either the 10am or the 11am story time each Tuesday during the month of July. 

During the registration window for this program, registration can be completed online below, by calling 590.6155. or in person at the Children's Services Desk at the Library.
