Designed for young children and their caregivers, Library storytimes engage participants with fun, dynamic early learning activities.
During a 20 to 40 minute storytime with a Children’s Specialist, children and their caregivers share books, songs and action rhymes. Storytimes support healthy, whole-child development and foster early literacy and social-emotional skills that are essential for reading readiness.
