Budget and staffing constraints have forced the library to re-evaluate our storytime offerings. We are able to offer more spaces by holding all of our Family Storytimes in the Community Room. Family Storytimes, which are replacing our age specific storytime, do not require registration. These sessions are suitable for children up to age 5 and offer a variety of activities for the whole family.
Our Baby Storytime does require registration and is suitable for babies up to 18 months. Please, no siblings, so that you may devote your full attention to your baby.

Story Blocks is a great resource for parents, caregivers and librarians alike. A project of Colorado Libraries for Early Literacy, Story Blocks is filled with short video demonstrations of rhymes, songs and fingerplays for your baby, toddler, or preschooler. You'll pick up some useful early literacy tips, and a little Spanish vocabulary, too, thanks to a selection of bilingual video clips. Explore the videos and learn something new that your little one will love. I've definitely learned a few new tricks for story time!

If you're looking for something silly and short to share with your little one, take a look at the Sandra Boynton items in our collection. The board books are quick little reads: some have silly themes like belly buttons and others are fun stories about animals. If you're looking for children's music that won't drive you crazy, Philadelphia Chickens is my favorite. The songs aren't obnoxious, but they are catchy enough that you'll remember them later if you need to entertain your baby on the go.
