The Children’s Department is a warm and welcoming area for children, their caregivers, teachers, day care providers, and anyone who is interested in children’s literature. We have an extensive collection of materials for children from birth to age 12 and their caregivers. Our space features a number of puzzles, blocks, and other manipulative and imaginative toys. Our aim is to offer such a comfortable and fun environment that no one wants to leave!

Baby Story Time Song Sheets

It’s never to early to learn! Talking, reading and singing to your baby is beneficial to the development of your child’s brain- and its good for you too! Here are some song sheets you can download to sing with your wee one, curated by Miss Hannah.

You can watch Miss Hannah demonstrate these songs on her Baby Story Time playlist below!
