learn-play-busHere it comes, around the corner – the Learn & Play Bus! Babies, toddlers and preschoolers can climb aboard and dig into play that cultivates pre-reading skills. Your library is the best resource for raising a reader.

Maintenance Week – The Learn & Play Bus will be out of service April 30 – May 3. 

Learn & Play Bus Schedule

More stops will be added when they become available. We hope to eventually be in all different areas of the community. We also will be looking at special Saturday times and will be exploring evening stops in the future.

Families can come and go during the two-hour stops. We will have between 1-2 short story times in between learning play with puzzles, art, blocks and imaginative play. Families can stay as long as they want and should feel comfortable leaving whenever they need to.
