I haven't been to the local storytime at my library in a long time! Now that my 5 and 8 year olds are in school, I think it's time to take my 2 year old to the libary for it. He loves me to read to him so I think he'll like it. Here's a listing of local library storytimes & events:

Carver Library
Halifax Library
Pembroke Library
Plympton Library
Hanson Library
Kingston Library
Plymouth Library

The storytimes are held on lots of different days so you could hit them all in a week if you're looking for things to do with the little ones!
