Share the fun of reading with your children ages 3-5 years! Children and their grownups will explore stories and activities to encourage children to develop a lifelong love of reading and learning. These 30-40 minute programs are designed to promote language and listening skills, expand children’s imaginations and arouse their curiosity about the world around them.
Get up and get creative at our Toddler Art and Stories! These 20-30 minute programs are full of books, songs and art activities that are designed to help develop your child’s language and motor skills. After storytime, your child will participate in a process-oriented art project to explore art materials and the world around them. Process-oriented art focuses on what can be learned from the act of making art rather than the product.

I am normally an outdoorsy person, and with parents who grew up in Maine and Wisconsin, you would think I would spend all winter sledding down hills and finding places to ski. I love snowshoeing and walking through freshly fallen snow, but I also appreciate cold, snowy afternoons spent indoors with my cats and a hot cup of tea.
Complex even when unchallenged and reciprocal, love grows in complication when met with any type of resistance.
Such resistance can be large scale, such as cultural disapproval, or more intimate, such as the health of one of the lovers.
