Every Monday in June from 1 to 1:45 p.m., join Pediatric Occupational Therapist Amber Chaves for a stimulating session of tummy time.
Explore aspects of parent/caregiver bonding, visual and auditory stimulation through gentle play and song, developmental patterns leading to sitting, variations on tummy time, and baby massage.
Learn about infant developmental milestones, therapeutic movement, and how tummy time now supports school readiness later.
This class is for babies 6 weeks to rolling over, with their caregiver. Please register for all sessions online, by phone, or in person.
Please note that the library will be closed on Thursday June 6 for Staff Development Day.

Feature Film: The Favourite
Join us Thursday, June 13 at 6:30 p.m. for another Oscar-caliber film in our Helderberg Room, plus free popcorn.
Synopsis of “The Favourite:” In the early 18th century, England is at war with France. A frail Queen Anne occupies the throne, and her close friend, Lady Sarah, governs the country in her stead, while tending to Anne’s ill health and mercurial temper. Sarah takes new servant Abigail under her wing, and Abigail sees a chance to return to her aristocratic roots.
