    Sounds like fun! It would be great if some of these events could take place on the weekend so working mother’s and their children could be included…

  2. Caryn Says:

    Katie, I absolutely agree with you. Attending these events that our children would love is nearly impossible with a full time job!

  3. Katie Says:

    Katie and Caryn,

    We apologize that both of our Dora visits are taking place during normal working hours. This is a special program, and we had to work around Dora’s limited availability. However, we do offer a variety of weekend and evening programs that your family might enjoy. This coming Saturday, our branches are offering Mobile Making Art Workshop, Family Time, Captain Underpants, What a Wonderful World, Lego Family Block Party, and more! Several of our branches offer Pajama Storytimes in the evenings. Visit our online calendar of events at to search for programs that might work for your schedule.

    Thank you for your comments.

    Is this only for 3-6 yr olds? My 1 yr old loves Dora.

    I just checked with the staff member that is leading the program, and she said you are welcome to bring your daughter. I hope you have a wonderful time!
