Baby Lapsit

Come sing and play with words, rhyme and puppets at Baby Lapsit. Parents can network while babies pick up phonological awareness, one of six foundations of future reading success. This informal program for babies and their parents/caregivers runs about 20 minutes and introduces the pleasures of the library to your baby or toddler.
