The Burrow is our programming room where we hold story times and other special activities for children. When it's not being used for a program, it's a quiet, sunny place for you to relax with a book, parents to feed their infants, or spend some quite time with their children. We have a literacy toy cupboard that has lots of fun and intersting activities for you to enjoy with your child.
In Marmot Meadows and the Burrow, you can read, hang out with friends, use the computers or just relax.
