Children's Story Time

Repeats every week every Tuesday until Tue Dec 31 2019.
Tuesday, June 18, 2019 - 11:00am to 11:30am

Our library's story times are informal programs that focus primarily on books. Occasionally the librarian will feel intrepid and sing a song or get the kids to dance or help with rhymes. Volunteer readers are often featured and they are appreciated by all.

Selected books vary from educational to whimsical, but all of them help build literacy skills. Story time children build the six skills they need to learn to read:

  • Print Motivation
  • Vocabulary
  • Print Awareness
  • Letter Knowledge
  • Narrative Skills
  • Phonological Awareness

Not only that, but story time is a great time to build social skills! The laid-back atmosphere means your temperamental two-year old will be welcome even on her grumpiest days.

You'll be surprised how fast the other kids role model proper library behavior as they play together with puzzles and toys in the sunny children's area.

And it's a great place and time to meet other parents, check out parenting resources, and browse for books, videos, CDs, and magazines for yourself and other members of your family.
