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. Story times not only foster a love of reading, but they also teach children valuable social skills like following directions, sharing and interacting with others. It gets them involved in the story they’re hearing and motivates them to want to read more. During story time, our librarians read books, sing songs, repeat rhymes or finger plays, and play with movement activities. Children are encouraged to participate.

We have programs for young listeners and their parents from birth through age 5. From morning meet ups to bedtime tales and family story times, we’ve got your young reader covered. Want a book recommendation? Ask a youth librarian. They’re the greatest resource and love sharing great books with parents.
