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.
STORY TIME classes are fun for kids, and great for them too.  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.
Bring us your wiggly, curious kiddos for a fantastic story adventure and literacy boost every week! Siblings are welcome to join as well.
So much fun, you wouldn’t know there’s important work occurring– we’re DEVELOPING READERS!  Think of all the wonderful advantages children have when they grow up using the library!
