Nurture your child’s love of books and the library while having a great time! The storytime is designed to engage children through movement, music, stories, and play. Storytime will be approximately 30 minutes and involve stories, songs, large and small movement activities, and lots of interaction. Each storytime will be followed by open playtime. During this time, the children learn to play and share; families can explore together; it gives adults and children a time to socialize. Each storytime will have different books and activities.
