Story Times

Reading to your child is a great way to grow a lifelong love of books. And it’s easy to start them early with engaging story times led by our enthusiastic youth librarians.Children are encouraged to participate as we read books, sing songs, rhymes and finger plays, and enjoy movement activities.

We have programs for young listeners and their caregivers from birth through age 5. From morning meet ups to bedtime tales and family story times, we’ve got your young reader covered.
