More sessions of Lapsit (for non-walkers) and Baby Bounce (for walkers under 2 years old) storytimes are scheduled in this month.

For the past few years, storytimes for the very young are always in great demand.  These storytimes were scheduled every other month for some time.  But we felt the urge from the parents in the community that we should have more.  So with great determination and the support from the community, we started to recruit many more volunteers since this past spring.  We had a successful volunteer training in August, and after all the time and efforts we put in, the turnout is great. 

Starting from October, we will be able to offer these storytimes every month.  New sessions in October includes:

Lapsit: Tuesdays 1:30 p.m.  (10/4, 10/11,and 10/18)   AND
            Thursdays 1:30 pm (10/6, 10/13, 10/20, and 10/27)
Baby Bounce: Wednesday 3:00 p.m. (10/5, 10/12, and 10/19)
 
Please call (510) 745-1421 to sign up for the Lapsit program, and for Baby Bounce, you are welcome just drop in.

A big thank you to our wonderful volunteers!!  Without them, we won’t be able to offer this great opportunity to engage these many babies with books, reading, and introduce them to the joy of the  library world.
