Miss Michelle’s crafts are posted every Wednesday morning at 9:30 a.m., with a bonus craft incorporated after Miss Andrea’s Storytimes on Thursday mornings.If you have a great craft idea for Miss Michelle to bring to life, you can email or message the BWG Library through Facebook.

New Online Babytime with Miss Andrea videos are posted every Saturday morning at 9:30 a.m.Online Babytime with Miss Andrea is a resource for parents of infants.This program empowers parents to interact with their child in the same way that they would have had they been able to visit the BWG Library and participate in a live Babytime.
