Tyke Tales Story Time on Zoom with Ms. Nora

I can’t wait to hear your voices and see your faces and introduce you to some of our new books as well as re-acquaint you with some favorites. This is going to be so fun! If you need a chromebook, we have them available to borrow. So jammie-up every Friday night and lets wind-down (hopefully) with some books. This program is generously funded by the Bernard Carl and Shirley Rosen Library Fund of the Community Foundation of Tompkins County.

Nora-Lodi Library is inviting you to a scheduled Zoom meeting.
