Weekly Storytimes on the Lawn

Join us for socially-distanced storytimes on the Library Lawn. Space is limited, with tickets available at the Library the day of the program on a first-come, first-served basis. To ensure everyone's safety, all families must follow our safety guidelines:

  • Masks are encouraged, but not required.
  • Keep a distance of at least six feet from participants outside your household.
  • If you or your family have any symptoms of COVID-19, please stay home.

We encourage families to bring a blanket or lawn chairs to sit on. Our lawn is in full sun, so remember sunscreen and hats! Keep small children close to you at all times.
