We at the Library are kicking back into high gear–that means this Fall starts a whole new line of programs for adults, teens, and children, including the ever-popular Story Times! Every Library location hosts Story Times for children and their families, so if you’re looking to bring your kids to a fun program full of stories, songs, games, rhymes, and a craft, the Library has what you need! And the best part about Story Time is that your child, no matter how old they are, will learn vital literacy skills and how to interact in a group with other children their age–all while having an absolute blast! Story Times have great books to share, songs to get everyone (including parents and caregivers) moving, rhymes and fingerplays to keep your hands busy, games to get you thinking, and crafts to get your creativity flowing.
Now, doesn’t Story Time sound like fun?
Just so you know, Story Times are grouped into different age ranges (unless otherwise specified):
Family Story Time is for families with children of all ages and parents and caregivers are encouraged to participate with their children.
Baby Story Time is for children from 6 to 24 months (pre-walkers and walkers) and their parents/caregivers.
Toddler Story Time is for children ages 2-3 and their parents/caregivers.
Preschool and Kindergarten Story Time is for children ages 4-5 and their parents/caregivers.
