Storytime will be held off site while the library is closed in preparation for our move to our new building. But, not to fear, children and parents/caregivers can still enjoy fun books, songs, and arts and crafts with Jeannine. The only difference will be the location! This special nature-themed storytime will include guest performances by forest rangers and a chance to explore natural objects and will be held at the Forest Service office in Carbondale at 620 Main Street.
