STORYTIME programs are presented for preschool children ages 3-5 and include stories, finger plays, and action rhymes. Caregivers must remain in the library during storytime; however, they cannot accompany children into the programs. In consideration of all participants, programs will start promptly at the assigned times. In order to minimize distractions, latecomers will not be admitted.

In honor of the Santa Rosa County Library System turning 10 years old, the Friends of the Pace Library will hold a MINI BOOK SALE on the 10th of each month. All books on the book shelves in the entryway of the Pace Library are only 10 cents each! Now is the time to stock up on reading material.
