September is back-to-Storytime month in the Children's Room, and this fall offers more options than ever. A few of our long-running programs, Preschool Storytime and Pajama Storytime, are meeting at new times, and a Storytime featuring iPads has been added to our offerings. The Saturday Storytimes that started in the spring will continue, but with a science theme. Here's what we have planned:
