Littles Meet-Up for Play! 
Toddlers and preschoolers meet in the Childrens' Section at the Melissa Public Library each Monday from 9:15 to 10:15 a.m. for a parent-led playtime. Your child may bring ONE toy to share (will go back home afterward). As much for mommies as for kidlets! Again, this is not a formal library programbut an open-playtime and no structured activities are scheduled. Just come in and visit!
