September 29th to December 1st

Introduce your preschooler to books and the library through the magic of Storytime. Children not only love stories, but listening to stories and rhymes is an important early step toward literacy. Songs, action rhymes and finger plays enhance learning while getting children up and moving. Storytime activities provide an engaging introduction to the written word that will encourage a lifelong love of books, reading and learning.

Also, watch for other children’s programs and events throughout the year:

Babytime is for parents or caregivers and their babies up to about 18 months. Learn rhymes, songs, stories, and finger plays to share with your children. Basic signing is introduced to help pre-verbal children communicate their needs. This program also offers a unique opportunity for parents and caregivers to develop a valuable tool kit of activities to use with their children.

For children from age 3 to 6, the library has a Storytime program.
