children’s classes

sjcl-corgis-4One of the most important things you can do for your child is read aloud for fifteen minutes a day. Our commitment is to make this project easy and interesting to both of you. We have a wide variety of age appropriate books that will make read aloud time a productive and valuable time for both you and your child.

With the exception of our Storytime, all other classes have fees, 10 % of which benefit the library.
