Finger play is very important in the development of your baby. Over the summer Ms.Erin, a Children's Librarian at Whitney Library, create a weekly video of a finger play you can do with your child. View them under Storytime - Fingerplay Friday 1-4 and 5-8.
Under Library House Rocks in the The Impact of Your Library we have added two videos.
