Library hosts new story time for babies, toddlers
Mother Goose Time is a special story time designed especially for babies and toddlers (ages 5 months to 2 years old). It will be offered at both the Waynesville Library and the Canton Branch Library and will provide parents and caregivers and their young ones time to interact with each other in a positive learning environment.
