1st and 3rd Tuesdays at 10:00 AM

Our newest programs are early literacy programs we designed to help you give your child their best start at fostering a love for learning and books.

Join us on the 1st and 3rd Tuesdays at 10 a.m. for our Slater Sprouts baby bounce storytime!  For children up to 2 years, this interactive lap-sit program is for infants and young toddlers with their caregivers to enjoy a time of interaction through songs, bouncing and stories.  We will also have a time of play and exploration.

Pair this with our Slater Sprouts reading incentive program and watch your sprout grow!
