Young Families

Story Time

Pomfret Public Library hosts story time at 10:30 am every Tuesday and Thursday nearly every week. Each session includes songs, stories, crafts and games, and wraps up with dancing in a bubble shower! Families are welcome at either group, but the Tuesday session is geared towards the cognitive needs and motor skills of the preK 3-5 year old, while the Thursday group is designed for the shorter attention span of toddlers.

You don’t need to register. Check the library calendar to verify that we’re meeting, and drop-in whenever you can!
