Storytimes are among the upcoming events for children at the Swanton Public Library.
On Tuesday mornings and Thursday afternoons, Swanton Public Library offers the opportunity for your baby, toddler, or preschooler to have fun and learn at the same time through weekly classes held at the library. The first six-week session begins Tuesday, Sept. 10 and continues through Thursday, Oct. 17.
This session children can learn about certain kinds of animals with the theme “Reptiles and Amphibians.” Registration is not required for these programs.
