There were stories, songs, crafts, play time, and a finger-puppet mouse at the weekly Toddler Time at Warren Public Library.

Children’s Librarian Susan Slater has been running Toddler Time for almost 18 years.

Children of any ages are welcome, but the fun is intended for children ages 1 to 5.

“We do a couple books, a couple songs,” Slater said. “It’s always themed. I like picking a theme.”

On Monday, the theme was mice.

She had several mouse-themed books and a mouse song/dance combination.

After, there were mouse crafts and games for the children to enjoy.

“You see kids that are so happy to come in,” she said. “It’s great seeing so many people show up. It’s a great experience for the kids to come to the library.”

There is literature and socialization. “The kids love the playing,” she said. “The kids make friends… the adults make friends.”

Parents have to stay in the children’s department with their children, and they are encouraged to participate and be engaged with the fun.
