Babytime in the Garden

This Summer, Babytime will meet outside in the Queset Garden. No registration is required and all families are welcome!

Best for infants and prewalkers, Babytime is storytime for littles - and their grownups! This session is full of songs, rhymes, and lap games - and maybe a short book - to fire up those babies' brains. Babytime meets every Wednesday at 10:30am with Miss Hannah and runs for about 20 minutes. Siblings are welcome and are encouraged to bring their own "baby" doll or stuffed animal.

Note: Storytime programs will be canceled if the weather does not allow us to meet in the Garden. If skies are cloudy and gray and you find yourself unsure about the day's events, you can check the Wiggleworms calendar event or visit the Library's Facebook page for updates. 

Please contact kids@amesfreelibrary.org with any questions or concerns.
