Registration open for Little Bookworms

After a short break to enjoy the holidays, the Butterfield Library’s weekly story times, Little Bookworms and Bouncing Babies, will resume on Thursday, Jan. 8.

Those interested should register now for the winter session of Little Bookworms, held on Thursdays at 12:30 p.m. This preschool-age program is intended for children age 2.5 through 5 years. Ms. Johanna will expose the children to books and stories to aid in language development and pre-reading skills. Each week is a different theme to help little ones learn about the world around them through stories, crafts and games.

Bouncing Babies will be held Thursdays at 10:30 a.m. Ms. Johanna leads this fun and friendly “Mommy & Me” program. Exposing a baby to books and reading from the very beginning helps to develop language and speech. A little one can play on the soft toys while parents meet other parents and caregivers. A simple story, songs and bubbles complete this introduction to story time. Drop-ins welcome.

Little Bookworms and Bouncing Babies will run for six weeks and will end on Thursday, Feb. 12. To register for Little Bookworms or for more information about the Butterfield Library’s programs and services, visit or call 845-265-3040.
