Looking for places to Trick or Treat on Halloween night?

Stop by the library for a treat! We will be giving out goodies until 8 PM on Halloween.

Weekly Story Time for Preschool Children

Story Time is on Fridays at 10 AM -

**No Story Time on Friday, 10/31 or Friday, 11/7 – Happy Halloween!**

**PLEASE NOTE:  In the event of inclement weather, if Berlin Central School District is closed, then Story Time is cancelled.**

Calling all preschoolers (and their caregivers)!   Join us each Friday for some story time fun! In this half-hour session, we read aloud, sing songs, move about, and explore the world around us through literature. Parents and children are encouraged to stay after story time so children have time for free play while grown-ups browse for books and socialize.

Registration is encouraged but not required. For more information, stop by the Library or call us at 733-5750.
