STORY TIMES

“Children are made readers on the laps of their parents.”
-Emilie Buchwald

Singing, talking, rhyming and reading to young children builds important early literacy connections in their rapidly developing brains.
Typically, the library hosts a variety of STORY TIME classes for kids.  Story times help children develop language skills, a love for books, comfort in the library, and the important Six Pre-Reading Skills through rhymes, songs, movement, play, and the best books. Classes are free, fun, relaxed, and children of all abilities and attention spans are welcome.

Currently, we are preparing for our summer programs and will offer our next story times throughout the summer 2022. Stay tuned for more info. In the meantime, stop by and visit us! The children’s area is open and full of goodies for you and your young one(s) to enjoy together. Pick-up an early literacy kit (“story time in a bag”) and a stack of fun new books to explore. To visit with Youth Services Librarian, Miss Jo, call 620-221-4470 or email jbrazil@wpl.org.

Thank you for singing, talking, reading to, and loving your sweet child(ren)!  Thank you for RAISING A READER!
