Family Storytime: Tuesdays @ 6:45pm,
Friday Storytime: Fridays @ 10:15am
Storytimes at the library are intended for children and provide a number of benefits. They provide an opportunity for learning about the world through the stories and topics of the books themselves. Children are given an opportunity to learn social skills by interacting with the other children who attend. For those programs that offer crafts, children are also presented with a process of learning 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.
