Recurring Programs

Story Time

Story time programs aim to instill a love of reading by encouraging parents and other special adults to read aloud to children.   Activities in story time promote brain and language development for children from birth to age 5. At story time, children and caregivers are introduced to five early literacy skills that are essential for learning to read including phonological awareness, vocabulary, letter knowledge, print awareness, and background knowledge. Remember: Sing, Talk, Play, Write, READ!

Fall Story Time Series - November 1st - December 13th
Story Time programs are intended for babies, toddlers, and preschoolers accompanied by caring adults.
Please register each individual child for story time.
