The Chelmsford Library's children's staff, in partnership with the Family Foundation Network, will continue the purposeful playgroup for children ages 2 and 3 years old this year. Each session will begin with a story. Imaginative play, connected to the story, will follow.

The playgroup will meet on Tuesday mornings at 10:00, and follows our storytime schedule. You may drop-in to this program.

The MacKay Branch Storytime is on Fridays at 10:30 am for children ages 2 - 5 years.
