Storytime introduces children to early literacy skills as well as the library through a half hour of stories, songs and a simple craft. Parents also have the opportunity to learn new stories and songs with their children and meet other parents. We offer Bouncing Babies! for children ages 6 to 23 months and a full schedule of Storytimes for children ages 2 to 5 years old.
Parents and caregivers can now choose which storytime is appropriate for their 3 year old. The storytimes planned for Ages 2 and 3 have shorter stories and more songs and fingerplays. If your child is ready for longer stories then they are ready to move on to the storytimes offered to 3-5 year olds.
         
 
Our full schedule of Storytimes and Bouncing Babies runs from September through May. Check back in late August for the full schedule and information about registration for the Fall session. In the meantime, register for the following sessions scheduled as part of the Summer Reading program, Fizz, Boom, Read! For more information about the Summer Reading program and a full list of programs and performers check out our Program page.
