Mother Goose on the Loose is for children 36 months old and younger, accompanied by an adult. It takes place at 10 a.m. on Friday in our Read House.

It uses rhymes, songs, puppets, musical instruments, and more to stimulate the learning process in babies and toddlers.

There are two separate, 4-week sessions: March 18 to April 8 and April 15 to May 6.

This is one of our few story times that requires registration. You can sign up by calling our Children’s Department at (440) 255-8811 ext. 221.

Tiddlywinks takes place at 10 a.m. on every Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Thursdays.

These story times are for children 36 months old and younger, accompanied by an adult.

It’s an interactive story time filled with stories, songs and rhymes just right for little listeners.

We have stories, songs, and a craft—with a different theme each time.
