Toddler activities continue at libraries

The program includes stories, games and more.

Correction: An earlier version of this article stated that the event starts at 10 a.m. in the Valley and 11 a.m. downtown. Those times were reversed. It’s 10 a.m. downtown and 11 a.m. in the Valley. The article has been changed to reflect that.

If you haven’t yet gotten your toddler to the Juneau Public Libraries for the weekly Toddler Time gathering, there are still plenty more chances to make it.

Toddler Time — a half-hour program that includes stories, games, songs and more — continues this week at the downtown library and Mendenhall Valley library. The event at the downtown library begins at 10 a.m., while it starts at 11 a.m. at the Valley library.

It’s designed for young children who have not had much experience being in group settings. Activities at the library aim to make them more comfortable in a library setting and provide a balance between sitting still and participating physically and vocally. Toddler Time takes place every Monday through Dec. 17, according to the Facebook event pages for both ongoing events.
