Preschool Storytime

Preschool Storytime

There will be no Preschool Storytime on Dec. 29th.

Join us every Wednesday morning at 10:30 a.m. in the GPL auditorium
(located in the basement, to the left of the stairs).

No sign up required, but for the safety of all, attendance will be limited to accommodate for social distancing practices.
*Masks are required at library programs for everyone over the age of 3.*


Preschool Storytime on Facebook Live

Join us every Wednesday morning at 11:30 a.m. on Facebook Live
(Join our event page to receive reminders when we go live).

If you are uncomfortable attending, or if our in-person session is full, we are offering a Facebook Live Storytime for families to enjoy from the comfort of their home.
