Spring 2011

Rhyme Time Schedule

March 21  - April 27
   

 Rhyme Time is a language-enrichment program for children aged 12 to 24 months.  Rhymes, songs, and finger plays will introduce your child to the sound and rhythm of words and to a few simple concepts such as physical features and counting.  They may also help develop listening skills, a good foundation for both family storytime and preschool.  Rhyme Time is designed to provide parents and caregivers a repertoire of materials to use at home with their children.

Each child must be accompanied by a parent or caregiver (one-on-one required).  Sessions are held on Mondays at 10:15 and 11:00 a.m. at the Indian Creek Branch (11:00 is a repeat of the 10:15 program) and on Wednesdays at 10:15 a.m. at the Main Library.  The spring session will run from March 21 through April 27.  Rhyme Time lasts about 20-25 minutes.  No registration is necessary, but space will be limited to 15 pairs each session.

Please be aware that this is not a traditional storytime.

  • This interactive program is one-on-one time with your child.
  • Adult participation is essential.  Be ready to participate and help your child focus on the activities.  Your enthusiasm will help your child to understand that this is fun!
  • Please do not bring another child of any age with you.  Please do not leave unattended older siblings under age 8 in the library, in accordance with library policy.
  • Toys and food/drink can be distracting to children.  Please do not bring them to Rhyme Time.  You may not be aware that the library has a no food policy.
