The Early Literacy Program looks forward to a new year of regularly scheduled story times, special events, and exciting guests sure to delight our youngest patrons!

All Early Literacy Program story times and special events
will now take place at 10:00 AM

Join us during our weekly programs, and continue to check out our Facebook page and website for dates of upcoming visits from Tanglewood Nature Center and Corning Science and Discovery Center. Our program has something to offer all ages, focusing on early literacy through song, stories, crafts, and active participation in our weekly gatherings. Our Early Literacy collection offers a diverse assortment of titles for all, from birth to school-aged children.

We look forward to seeing you soon!
