Open to public, but knowledge of the reading material is greatly encouraged.For complete schedule of chapters to be discussed each week, please contact: LeAnn at email@example.com.

Babytime has gotten so popular/crowded, we’re offering two of them this Tuesday! Because the library opens at 10am, please note that there will be no library services before the 9:30am Babytime; check out your books after! Also, plan to attend one, but not both sessions offered today.
Play an important and powerful role in shaping the early learning experiences of your child! Babytime is the perfect place to socialize and learn important skills with your baby or toddler. We’ll be singing songs, doing bouncy rhymes, learning some “baby signing” and reading along to fun board books in the first half of this program. In the second half, the toys come out! While the babies play (and learn to share!), caregivers have a chance to socialize and exchange information.In order for all children to participate and have a successful experience, please let us know if your child has any special needs that we can accommodate. Call Karen at 734-475-8732, ext. 212.
We welcome family history researchers to spend some time digging into the library’s online genealogy resources, such as Ancestry Library Edition, HeritageQuest, SeekingMichigan.org, and our own StoriesofChelsea.org.

Registration is very important so that our volunteers can prepare for your questions.
