Book babies

The Marathon County Public Library is currently taking registration for Book Babies that will be offered every Monday morning starting in January 2021. The program offers stories and more for little ones under age two and time for parents and caregivers to socialize.

Unlike the virtual story times, Book Babies will be conducted through Go-ToMeeting and will be interactive. Songs and rhymes will be geared towards little ones under the age of two with a caregiver. Leaders will read books, sing nursery rhymes, and more for about 20 minutes. Afterward, there will be time for caregivers and babies to see and speak with each other.

These weekly events are free to attend. Go to events/10286#event-10286 to register for Book Babies.
