The current session of winter storytimes will continue through February 23 at all six Sussex County Library locations. Lapsits are for the youngest children, ages 6 months through 2 years, and include silly songs and rhymes, simple stories and fingerplays. Read & Plays are targeted to families with multiple young children, with age-appropriate books and activities for ages 6 months through 4 years. Preschool Storytimes include more advanced stories and simple crafts to help children get ready for Kindergarten.

Children ages 8-12 are invited to make treasure boxes from clay with local artist, Sally Stansfield. The Main Library in Frankford will host Kids Can Cook!
