Community Helper Storytimes

In May, we salute community helpers with special storytimes in honour of their significant days/weeks: First Responders Day (May 1), International Firefighters' Day (May 4), National Nursing Week Day (May 6 to 12), Police Week (May 12 to 18), and National Paramedic Services Week (May 27 to June 2).

May 12 to 18 is Police Week in Halton—and we have a police constable coming to storytime! Geared to preschoolers and their families, children under 4 must bring an adult.
