Fairfield County Moms Blog is excited to announce our Library Hop around Fairfield County. This Fall we will be hopping around several of our local libraries for a story time event for children, followed by an open play for both moms and kids. Each library is unique and our goal is to provide moms opportunities to get out and explore all of the different resources our local libraries can provide while encouraging a love of reading and learning for our community. All events are free and open to children of all ages, however you must register in order to attend! We hope to see you there!
