About Storytime

Join us for Storytime!

Storytimes are approximately 20 minutes long and are filled with stories, songs, fingerplays, and movement designed for infants, wobblers, toddlers, or preschoolers. The goal of storytime is to promote the joy of shared reading, the benefits of early literacy, and the importance of the caregiver-child connection.

Storytime is a fun, interactive, language-rich program designed especially by our youth services librarians to help young children build the skills they’ll need when they learn to read. The youth services librarians plan each storytime based on research and best-practices developed by the Every Child Ready to Read program from the Public Library Association and the Association for Library Service to Children. Every Child Ready to Read involves proven practices in five areas for helping build a positive foundation for learning to read: talking, singing, reading, writing, and playing. 

Space is limited due to the room capacity and to provide a positive, safe environment for all. Children must be accompanied by a grown-up. Many lasting friendships are created at storytime. Join us!
