TODDLER TIME

Toddler Time is based on the award-winning program "Mother Goose on the Loose" and incorporates songs, nursery rhymes, stories, fingerplays, bells, scarves, and puppets to engage newborns to children age three.

Toddler Times are held in the Library Auditorium most Mondays & Fridays and start at 10:30 am. The program lasts approximately 30 minutes.


Have kids ages 3-5? Our Story Time program meets Tuesdays and Wednesdays at 10:00 AM in the Children's Department.


"Mother Goose on the Loose"

The "Mother Goose on the Loose" program helps children develop skills for success in a classroom. It helps children acquire a rich vocabulary and strengthens foundational reading skills. MGOL gives children opportunities to practice turn-taking, direction following, paying attention and showing appreciation to others. The age-appropriate listening, moving, and singing that takes place in MGOL exercises fine and gross motor skills, fosters speech development, keeps children’s interest for an extended period of time, gives children opportunities to make scientific observations regarding cause and effect, and provides a joyful introduction to the world of books and reading.
