We have set up a Google Classroom for you to visit. Please contact the library if you would like to join. We will need your name, your child(ren)’s name and age(s), and your email address. Once we have this information, we will send you an invitation. Each week, we will share a story, songs, and activities. Some weeks, there may also be a grab-and-go craft that you can pick up here at the library, if you would like. We are looking forward to a time when we can all gather together at the library again, but until then, let’s have some reading fun virtually!
