My granddaughter just loves this. She is two and a half and Preschool Storytime is a great opportunity for her to get valuable social skills before starting preschool. We go every Thursday. She considers all the children there as well as the librarians at Cambridge her “friends”

When I went to learn how to download library books, the teacher was waiting. We went straight to work, downloaded the app, she showed me how to get books and I have already got a book I am now reading and have added a book on reserve. The app allows one to change the type style and size and who knows what other magic awaits. I'm liking this a lot.

Grandkids ages almost 3 & 5 loved it! Very excited to give their creations to Dad! Plenty materials to be creative and helpful interaction from staff member running the event.

Got there a tad late; piece being played was beautiful. Next pieces were rather slow and downers, but last piece was more upbeat. My 3 kids were sitting quietly but cant say same for some others. Good crowd. Kids liked little brownie bites.

Our 2.5 and 4.5 LOVED this! The student volunteers did a good job explaining and making sure the kids had enough decorating supplies. We finished embellishing at home and made hand print inspired cards too! Big hit with with Mom and Family. Most important each kid had a unique hand print tree!
