Lapsit for babies & toddlers who are too young to sit quietly for the regular story time and their parents or other caregivers.  Mondays at 10:30 am and 11:15 am in the Children's Program Room. Lead by Volunteer Amanda Barche Lindberg from Ivy Tech. This is a good opportunity for families to make new friends and have fun at the library.

Story time is held each Tuesday at 10:30 am, Thursday at 4:00 pm, and Friday at 10:30 am in the Children's Program Room. Come and listen to Miss Linda read stories and help children create a craft. Parents and caregivers are expected to attend with their children. Programs are designed for 2 to 5 year olds, but older children are welcome to attend. 

Many other special programs are held throughout the year.
