Library Story Time - is a 2-year old too little?

I took my grandbaby, who was 2 in January, to story time at the library. To be fair, I had misgivings, because she wasn't in the best mood to start with and hadn't had much breakfast. But she has seemed to enjoy it in the past. Today she was so disruptive, throwing herself in the floor and crying instead of listening to the stories and songs, that we had to leave. Mortifying, to be honest! Of course she had a fit because she didn't want to leave, too.
I'm wondering if she just isn't ready and perhaps I should wait a couple of months and try again. She's an only child, so I want to find opportunities for her to be around other children on the days I care for her. There were other children there, both older and younger, that sat and participated quietly.
Any advice? It seemed like anything I did to calm her or get her involved just made matters worse!
