Weekly Wednesday Storytimes with Miss Julie!

Each week we will have a themed craft bag available to pick up in-person at the library. Every Wednesday a new Virtual Storytime with Miss Julie will be posted to our YouTube channel and website.
Swing by and pick up a craft bag each week on Monday, Tuesday, or Wednesday. Then tune in for Miss Julie’s Storytime and enjoy the craft to go with the story! Share pictures of your completed crafts with us on Facebook, Instagram, or by email!
