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 with our Summer program running from June 21 to
