Here at the Newark Library Toddler Time has typically happened on Friday mornings from 10-10:20 a.m. Fortunately for us, it has become such a hit as to cause us to start a couple more renditions of this same program at 2 other times/days. We will be hosting a second Friday Toddler Time at 10:25-10:45 and a Wednesday morning Toddler Time from 10-10:20 a.m. starting in October. We are hoping to accomodate all the little ones and their moms/dads/caregivers by doing this. So, choose just one iteration as they will all be the same!

Mrs. Inocencio is back on Saturday, September 10th at 3 p.m. helping us create a beautiful art piece from the Mexican culture.  Due to the sharp metals and small pieces, this program is for 4th grade to adulthood.  This is an ideal project for tweens, teens and adults.

All library events, free to you, are funded by the Newark Library League.
