In appreciation of Dr. and Donna Masucci donating Books of Bravery from Project Brave, toddler story times at the Parlin Library will focus on Social and Emotional Learning themes for the month of May.

On May 30th, we will read stories and do activities about Kindness. Toddler story time begins at 10 am and is intended for children ages 2-5. The programs are free and open to the public. There is no registration required. Please call the Parlin Memorial Library Children’s Room at 617-394-2306 for more information.
