Another program back by popular demand by the library’s youngest patrons is lapsit story time. At 11 a.m., every Tuesday in April, parents and their babies, ages birth through 36 months, can enjoy a fun time together exploring books and stories, singing songs with hand motions, and engaging in meaningful play. The sessions are 20 minutes long followed by 20 to 30 minutes of play. Wiggles expected. Lapsit is also free to attend, but pre-registration is requested. Sign up your child at the youth services desk, call (574) 834-7122 ext. 202, or email [email protected].

Purchase tickets from adult services director Beth Smith.
