Come out of the weather and attend a storytime this winter.
Why attend a storytime?
- Meet people in your community. Storytime is a great place to talk to other caregivers and make friends.
- Develop your child’s pre-literacy skills. The songs, rhymes, books and activities we do in storytime help children learn skills they will need in order to read and write later on.
- They’re convenient. We hold storytimes on a variety of days and times, including evenings and Saturdays.
- They’re for all ages. We have storytimes just for babies, toddlers and preschoolers, and many for the whole family.
- It’s free! All library programs are offered at no cost.
- It’s FUN! Storytimes include bubbles, singing, art activities, and sometimes even the parachute!
