Our last storytime of the Fall season is the week of Tuesday, November 19. They will reseume again in January.
Storytimes for children 3 years of age and younger are 30 minutes long and include a variety of stories, songs, fingerplays, and other activities. Storytimes are held in our children’s story and craft room. Children must be accompanied by a parent or caregiver. We ask that parents and caregivers arrive at least 5 minutes before storytime begins in order to pick up nametags for their children and get settled in.

The last sessions for Tail Wagging Tutors are the week of November 13. Students in grades K-5 who would like to gain confidence in reading out loud will have the opportunity to read to a dog for 15 minutes. The dogs had a good time with the program, so we hope they will be able to return in mid-to-late January!
Students meet the fourth Saturday of the month to create their own Lego structure. They will be displayed in the library until the next meeting. Then the students can make new structures. We have two class times in the morning for each day. Please sign up for only one of the times: 10:15-11:00 am or 11:30 am -12:15 pm.

Group Tours and School Visits: Schools, daycares, scout groups, and other community organizations are encouraged to bring their classes to the library for a visit. Please call (248) 618-7692 to schedule your class visit. A children’s librarian will provide age-appropriate activities for your group such as storytimes, booktalks, library skills instruction, and tours. Your group of children may receive library cards if they are Waterford residents or attend Waterford Schools. Library card applications are required to be completed by the children's parents and returned to the library one week prior to the class visit. The staff is unable to process 20+ applications on the day of your visit.
Arrangements can be made for a children's librarian to come and visit your school or daycare facility. We will do our best to accommodate the teachers' requests. Please schedule all school visits in advance.
