The Southeast Library will now have two baby/toddler story times on Wednesdays! Starting November 30, we will offer a story time to babies and toddlers up to age 2 at 11 a.m. and again at 12:15 p.m. Both of these story times will last about 30 minutes each. Once the first story time is over, we will empty the room completely, and then open it up again at 12 noon to let in the next crowd.

For the enjoyment of everyone, we ask that children are only taken to the story time that is best suited for their age group. Due to fire codes, the maximum attendance for all of our story time programs is 65 people--that includes babies, kids and adults.

For a complete listing of all our story times and the recommended ages, please see our calendar listings to the right.
