Our Winter Early Literacy group registration is now available on our website:

The goal of these Early Literacy groups is to foster an early love of community and learning in familiar settings within the town of Bourne. All groups have been created for parent/ caregiver participation. These groups are offered through a collaboration between the
Jonathan Bourne Public Library and the Bourne Early Childhood Council.

Our winter session runs January 8th through March 23rd. Groups will not meet during February school vacation week - February 19th - February 23rd. More details on our Events Calendar or "Things to do" page.
