First Floor - Storytime Room
Best for ages 18 months to 3 years, with a caregiver. Space is limited to the first 12 families each week, so stop by the Kids Desk to pick up a nametag. Attend as many as you like.

Grab your beach ball, we’re going to the beach! Crabs are scuttling, toes are wiggling, waves are crashing, and the sun is shining. We’ll enjoy favorite songs and dances, do an Octopus Hula, jump on a banana boat, and then snuggle up and happily relax to gentle beach sounds and songs. Beach Days is as fun and restorative as…well, a trip to the beach! Led by a teacher from Kindermusik with Pat.
