Family Storytime

Storytime

Family Storytime provides an opportunity for caregivers to actively engage with their children under age 5. Together with a Youth Librarian, you can build early literacy skills in a welcoming environment through meaningful stories, songs, and play. Encourage a love of language and reading while practicing listening and cooperative tasks. We look forward to sharing this experience with you. Every Family Storytime is followed by a half hour of ABC Activity Time. No registration required.

**NOTE: The library is closed on November 23 and 24. There will be no programming on that day.

**NOTE: On Thursday, November 30 the 10:00 AM storytime is cancelled.

Bilingual Storytime Series

Early child research shows that bilingual children have an edge in development. Speaking two languages benefits children’s overall learning, marked by larger vocabularies, flexible problem-solving skills, and higher-level cognitive abilities. Bilingual learning also supports a set of mental skills that allow children to thrive academically, regulate emotions, and grow into mentally healthier adults.

Join us as we share books, rhymes and songs that will help foster an appreciation of our wonderful multicultural community and launguage. Activities presented will be geared to children between the ages of 0-5 years old.

December 14 - Join us for a bilingual storytime presented in German and English. 

December 27 - Join us for a bilingual storytime presented in Spanish and English.
