Story Times

A new session of Story Times has begun and will run through February 13th.

Family Story Time, for all ages up to grade 6, is on Monday evenings from 7:00 – 7:30 p.m. Little Listeners Story Time, for children ages 3-5, is on Wednesdays from 10:15 – 10:45 a.m. and features lively tales and participatory activities. Tyke Tales Story Time, for children ages 0-18 months, is on Thursdays from 10:15 – 10:35 a.m., followed by a short playtime. Tots & Toddlers, a sprinkling of stories, songs and laughter for ages 18 months-3 years, is offered on Thursday mornings from 11:15 – 11:45 a.m.

Simply Stories is for all ages and is held every Friday from 10:30 – 11:00 a.m. It is designed to emphasize books and the arts of reading and storytelling. Kids are welcome to bring a friend and enjoy listening to stories in front of the Children’s Room fireplace! These sessions will also inspire an appreciation for the library’s wonderful collection of children’s books. All ages are welcome, but the interest level may be from ages 3-8.

All the Story Times reflect the early literacy initiative, Every Child Ready to Read, offering parents many fun and useful suggestions to help their children gain early skills that lead to reading.

Children attending these free programs must be accompanied by an adult. One child per adult lap, please. No registration is required.
