Millhopper Branch

Children's Area

Join us for rhymes, songs, bounces and more! Geared for babies and their caregivers.

Babies will bounce, giggle, and clap as they enjoy rhymes, songs, and lap bounces that help them bond with a caregiver and develop important early literacy skills. 

While Baby Time is an exciting, interactive activity for both children and their adults, there are quite a lot of developmental benefits that stem from storytelling during adolescence. Through simple group activities, your child is learning early literacy skills, fine motor skills, facial expressions, listening skills, and so much more.
