Baby and Me is a special story time for babies 0-2 years of age. The class is 20 minutes long and meets after Story Time on Tuesdays at 11 AM. One child and one caregiver will join Miss Katie in singing songs, finger-playing, and introducing babies to stories and books. Baby and Me uses The Very Ready Reading Program, which suggests early literacy tips and fun ways to begin the love of reading with your child. The group style setting of the class is great for baby socialization and meeting new families. No registration is required.
