Baby Talk

Join us for a fun and educational program for babies ages 0-24 months and their caregivers! For an hour each week we’ll open our children’s programming room to our youngest patrons, with developmentally appropriate toys and books and coffee and tea for the grownups. Meet other caregivers and learn and grown with your baby with a new experience each week! Older siblings welcome, but expect your little one to be star of the show. We’ll meet in the children’s programming room.
