Storytime

Learning begins at birth, and parents are a child’s first and most important teachers. Help your child get ready to read with storytimes for children offered by your library. Most branches offer regular storytimes in which children’s librarians share books, stories, rhymes and songs with you and your child. Storytimes encourage language and pre-reading skill development that help your child grow into a successful reader. Parents are encouraged to participate.
