Family Storytime: Tuesdays @ 6:45pm (beginning 9/5) at WBPL
Baby Time: Wednesdays @ 9:00am at Town Hall
Friday Storytime: Fridays @ 10:15am at WBPL
Storytimes at the library provide a number of benefits for children of all age groups! They give kids an opportunity to learn about the world through the stories and topics of the books. Children learn social skills by interacting with the other children. Crafts and activities also help young children develop motor skills.
The library offers several different types of storytimes throughout the year.
Fridays @ 10:15am – Year round
Storytimes run all year on Friday mornings. They feature a set of themed stories like different animals, holidays, colors, and other specific topics. The stories are followed by a quick craft activity that the children participate in and can take home.
Storytimes are geared toward preschool age through early elementary, but all ages are welcome. This is especially true during the summer when children are out of school and accompany families or babysitters to the library.
Tuesdays @ 6:45pm – September to May
Family Storytime offers a set of themed stories followed by a bedtime snack. Like Friday Storytimes, the books chosen for Family Storytime often reflect a season, holiday, or other special topic. Kids and adults alike are welcome to wear their PJs to Storytime.
Since this program occurs in the evening during the school year, Family Storytime is geared for all ages. This allows caregivers with multiple children to bring them all together. We also know younger children learn from older children, and having kids of different ages interact can lead to some beautiful learning moments.
Wednesdays @ 9:00am – at Town Hall
Librarians host activities to help babies develop early literacy skills with songs, rhymes, and books- geared for children who are pre-walkers or crawlers.
No cost, no registration required. This program will be canceled if there is no school due to weather or no school days.
