Do Drop-in! Playgroup

It’s a little like a playgroup, a little like a library visit and a whole lot of fun. Miss Olivia welcomes children of all ages to come play at the library, on the playground and inside with our toys, crafts and books. A chance to meet new friends, reconnect with some old, burn some energy and cool down, all at once. Snacks are allowed in the large meeting room. All ages with caregivers. No enrollment necessary.

Simple & Sweet Story Time

Every Friday from May 10 to June 21 from 11:30 a.m.-noon and 1:30-2 p.m.

Bringing back classic story time, Miss Olivia leads the group through some song and dance, as well as a few of her favorite read-alouds, appropriate for the very young and their siblings and friends. Registration is required. Please call the library at 978-465-0539 or stop in to sign up. Ages 0-4 with caregivers. Registration is required. Register for one class only.
