Storytime Schedule Fall 2020
The Grafton Public Library provides a variety of storytime sessions. Attendance is drop-in unless otherwise noted. Promptness is appreciated. We expect the little ones to wiggle! Don’t feel you have to sit through the entirety of each session – it’s fine to excuse yourself and come back later or the following week. If school is cancelled, storytime is cancelled as well. If there is a half-day of school, morning storytimes are cancelled.
Research shows that the strongest predictor of school success is caregivers who read with their children at home. Don’t forget to browse for materials to take home before or after the program!
Unless noted, all Fall 2020 storytimes will be virtual. We hope to return to our temporary location at 53 North Main Street in North Grafton soon

YOUNG SCIENTISTS SPONSORED BY YFCP
Join STEM Beginnings for a 6-week virtual series for children, ages 3-6. Children will learn STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Math) concepts through hands-on activities, story time and simple experiments.
This is an interactive class using Zoom and parents/caregivers are encouraged to help their child. A list of materials for families to prepare for each class will be provided weekly.
