Little Zoomers Story Time
Tuesdays at 11:00 a.m.

Little ones can be as loud as they want in this 30 minute virtual story time! Give them something to look forward to each week while we read, sing, and dance together.
Wednesdays at 7:30 p.m.
(ages 2-5) (Instagram live)
Each Wednesday night, we’ll go live on our children’s department Instagram page (@marlborofreelibrary_kids) for a quick bedtime story and a few songs to get little ones ready for bed.
Babies on Zoom
Thursdays at 10:30 a.m.
(birth through age 2) (zoom)
Join other new parents and caregivers with their babies while we read, bounce, and sing songs together. This virtual ‘mommy & me’ style program is designed to stimulate babies, but also offer caregivers a place to meet, chat, and share their experiences.
