Hello Everyone!

Welcome to our fall program season 2021! We are excited to announce that we will have a preschool program for ages 2-5 years every Friday at 11am-11:45am.

On Friday September 24, Oct 8 & 22, Anne-Marie will be at the library in-person with her music and shakers, so get ready to have music fun with your little one! Caregivers attend program remain in the program with the child for the entire time. Registration is required by or by calling the library at 401-769-9044 x2 or filling out this form 

On Friday Oct 1, 15 & 29,  Ms. Chris will read stories, sing songs, play with puzzles, and do a craft or two to take home. Call Ms. Chris at 401-769-9044 x2 to reserve your spot.

Space is limited. We do require registration as we have to make sure we have enough space in the room as we must adhere to social distance rules.

Walk-ins will be welcome so long as there is space in the room.

Ms. Chris will also offer Story Time by appointment. You tell her the time that is good for you and your little one and she will develop a story time around the interests of your child or children. If your little one likes sharks, we do a shark book a shark song and a shark craft.  This is for individual families done by appointment with Ms. Chris. Call Ms. Chris at 401-769-9044 x2 to book your story time appointment.
