In January 2015 we introduced a quieter, gentler storytime for families of children with special needs. This is a smaller program with only 12 children. Stories are aimed at a preschool audience but any age child is welcome. We sing songs, read books with hands-on flannel activities, and play with bubbles!

The Library has an After School Program …come and join the fun!!! Offered since 1987, this free program is for children in kindergarten – 4th grade. Bus transportation from schools to the program is provided, parent pick up is at 5pm. Attendance is one day a week.

Join us for games, snacks, library scavenger hunts, book clubs, read to the dogs, outdoor play and special events like Iditarod in the park, movies and popcorn & so much more!
