Making connections—whether with books, music,
or people—is the foundation of storytime at Upton Town Library. TinyTots (aka

with their parents and caregivers and meet new friends! TinyTots lasts about 20
minutes followed by open playtime and book browsing. Registration is requested,
but drop-ins are always welcome. Sessions are held in eight-week intervals on
Friday mornings at 10:30am.Our Summer session
will run from June 21 to August 9, 2013.
