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

The playgroup meets on Tuesday mornings at 10:00, and follows the storytime schedule above. You may drop-in to this program.
