Families with young children ages 0-5 looking for a fun way to experience stories and songs can join us for outdoor Wings of Wonder Storytime. Together with a Youth Librarian, build early literacy skills in a welcoming environment through meaningful stories and connection. Encourage a love of language and reading while practicing listening and cooperative tasks.

All storytimes take place near our Wings of Wonder butterfly garden in the back of the library so bring a blanket for the dewy morning grass and bring some bug spray if you desire to keep the mosquitos at bay. You may bring snacks and drinks. In case of inclement weather, storytime will be cancelled. Please note that the storytime will be between 20-30 minutes and WILL NOT be followed by an open play time.

This program REQUIRES REGISTRATION and space is limited. Registering one person from your family secures a spot - please register using the card of your child aged 0-5. Registration for all sessions begins two weeks in advance.

Although outdoor restrictions may have been lifted, we ask that each family is mindful of their storytime neighbor and gives each other plenty of space to dance and play.
