StorytimeTimes medStorytime at Bathurst Library is always fun. There are new themes every month incorporating stories, music and craft. The storytime sessions are highlighted in maroon on the calendar.

New Kids on the Book is a wonderful way to introduce your new child to words and rhyme play. It is suitable for 0-2 year olds but big brothers and sisters are always welcome. The calendar for this is included in the storytime calendar highlighted in orange.
