Early Literacy & Children’s Library

The Rouletta Blowers Gasparian Early Literacy Program supports infants through school-aged children. We have resumed in-person Storytime as of March 15, 2022. Please respect that masks are recommended but not required.

Our programs have something to offer all ages, focusing on Early Literacy through song, stories, play, crafts, and other activities. Our children’s collection offers a diverse assortment of materials for all. You can find both new and old favorites of board books, picture books, and nonfiction picture books in our Children’s Room.

Thank you to Tanglewood Nature Center, Corning Science and Discovery Center, Museum of the Earth, Lisa Fernandez Song and Story, Jay Leeming, Cornell Cooperative Extension of Schuyler County and more for providing educational and engaging programming. We hope to have you again soon!
