From birth to age six, a child’s brain is going through a ton of crucial development. Each time you read a story, sing a lullaby, tickle a bellybutton, or play peek-a-boo, connections are building between your child’s brain cells. Library storytimes are a great way to foster a love of reading and help prepare your child to learn to read.
No registration is necessary for any of our storytimes, but space may be limited. For some storytimes, tickets will be handed out on a first come, first served basis beginning 15 minutes before the program begins.
Introduce your child to the sound and rhythm of words and simple concepts through rhymes, songs and fingerplays. Duration: 20 to 25 minutes. For newborns to 24 months + a caregiver.
