Facebook LIVE and In-Person Story Time

Look below for dates and times

We are excited to welcome a very limited audience to our story times in November!  Our space is limited to two families at each story time.  For In-Person Story Time, registration is required by calling 231-722-8014.  Everyone present, including children 2 and older, must wear a face mask covering their noses and mouths.
Don’t worry if you can’t be here in person!  We stream all story times on Facebook Live and post the recordings.  Not sure which day to attend/watch?  Our Toddler Story Time is intended for children who enjoy shorter stories and more movement activities.  Our Preschool Story Time is designed for children who prefer to follow along with longer stories.
