Storytimes

Children’s staff prepare stories, songs, flannelboards, puppets and crafts to encourage a love of reading and books in young children ages birth through 6 years. Storytimes are fun and an excellent model for reading to children. Parents are a young child’s best teacher and we encourage you to read books with your child everyday.

TALK SING READ PLAY = SMART KIDS.


Early literacy is important. We offer early literacy tips at our storytimes and early literacy workshops.
