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.
