Tales and Tunes with Tots @ Latham Library
Aug 28 @ 10:00 am – 11:00 am
Tales and Tunes with Tots @ Latham Library

A Playgroup for babies and toddlers and their caregivers.

We meet in the basement at Latham Library. Drive around the back of the library to the parking lot. Enter that door on the back of the building. Once you see the library door (inside the building), don’t go that way… turn left and find the steps to the basement. See you there!

Details:
~ 0-3ish year olds and caregivers
~ short active songs, short books and play / social time
~ infants VERY welcome
~ unshowered, hair a mess, everyone still in pajamas? Just COME! Really!! Nobody cares how you are dressed or how you look!! We are not a group that you have to get dressed up for.
~ Late? We don’t care!
~ New and nervous? We’ve all been the new one!
~ Also, NO need to leave the room if you’ve got a baby or child crying… we do NOT mind… Why do I say this? Because the parents that have frequent criers are the parents that take themselves out of (or keep themselves out of) social situations the most often and we don’t want you to feel alone.
