The library offers storytimes at all branch libraries. There are storytimes for babies, toddlers and preschoolers. Several branches also offer Play Dates.
Please check your local branch or the library's Events Calendar for the current schedule.
The Summer 2015 Session is June 1-July 10.
The Fall 2015 Session is September 1-December 11.
Storytime introduces the child to the best in children's books. Because a child responds naturally to the rhythm of words and the repetition of sounds, storytimes include nursery rhymes, poetry, fingerplays and songs. The child who attends storytime regularly will develop an enjoyment and appreciation of books, the ability to concentrate, and the ability to participate in group activities.
Suggestions for a successful Storytime experience.
Play Dates are an opportunity for preschoolers and toddlers, along with their caregivers to play with toys and learning materials in an early literacy enviroment. Play date fosters vocabulary and other pre-reading skills. The programs are open to young children 18 months to 5 years.
