We emphasize developing basic digital skills with not only laptops, but tablets and other mobile devices. Training is also available for library services like Overdrive eBooks, Zinio digital magazines, Consumer Reports and other databases and how to effectively use the Library’s new Enterprise online catalog. This program is aimed at educating users rather than computer repair.
Please register in advance through our online event calendar, calling or by visiting the library. Registration is very important so that our volunteers can prepare for your questions.
Lastly, if you cannot attend a session please call the library at 734-475-8732 x 503 and leave a message, we would appreciate it.

Babytime @ Chelsea District Library at McKune Room
Oct 24 @ 10:30 am – 11:15 am

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 Edith at 734-475-8732, ext. 213.
