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.
