  1. Hello,

    Do you offer baby story time? I have a 7 month old and would like to meet other moms in the area. Any resources would be greatly appreciated!



    1. We are presently offering story hour at 10 am on Fridays for preschoolers. If you think your child is up to listening to picture books being read, then he/she is welcome to attend.
