PLUS Second Saturday of the month at 10am
Stories and crafts are geared toward 18 months-5 year-olds, but we encourage all ages to participate. Each session is 45 to 60 minutes long and includes songs, rhymes, fingerplays, flannelboards, several books, and a craft. ***New*** The library received a grant from the Paul V. Sherlock Center to make storytime more accessible to children with special needs.  Monday storytime is our Sensory Storytime, with more sensory activities and supports like visual schedules and lap pads available.  This is an inclusive program for ages 18 months-5 years.  Please email us (staff@davisvillefreelibrary.org) or call to sign up (884-5524). Drop-ins are also welcome at any session.

PAGES TO POPCORN BOOK CLUB
Join Sarah and Amanda to read, watch, and discuss books and their movie adaptations.  This book club is committed to settling the eternal question: Which is better – the book or the movie?  Meetings will occur on the 2nd Wednesday of each month at 6:30pm.  Feel free to bring along some dinner or a snack.  We will provide the popcorn!  Call the library or email us at staff@davisvillefreelibrary.org to sign up!
