Owl Art Baby Lap Time

Baby Lap Time

Thursday, October 5, 2017, 10:00 am

A story time experience for our youngest library users and their caregivers. These 20-30 minutes story times introduce books, songs, rhymes, tickles, and bounces developmentally appropriate for children from birth to when they start walking.  Baby Lap Time is a wonderful way to introduce your child to the joys of reading in a positive and fun atmosphere. This story time is designed so the baby will be on their caregiver’s lap and the grown up is actively involved in the program. It is recommended that each child have their own adult with them.
