Storytime introduces children to early literacy skills as well as the library through a half hour of stories, songs and a simple craft. Parents also have the opportunity to learn new stories and songs with their children and meet other parents. We offer Bouncing Babies! for children ages 6 to 23 months and a full schedule of Storytimes for children ages 2 to 5 years old.
Parents and caregivers can now choose which storytime is appropriate for their 3 year old. The storytimes planned for Ages 2 and 3 have shorter stories and more songs and fingerplays. If your child is ready for longer stories then they are ready to move on to the storytimes offered to 3-5 year olds.
Our regular rotation of storytimes begins in September and runs through April. Check back in mid August for the starting date in September.
