Story Time


Wednesdays at 10:00 AM is story time! Gather your preschoolers and toddlers to enjoy stories, rhymes, (occasional) crafts and fun with our children’s librarian or guest story teller.

Story Time Guidelines

We love seeing you and your children on a regular basis and find it a privilege to help guide them as they become lifelong readers, learners and library lovers!

We offer weekly Story Time for ages 0-5. Programs are designed for specific developmental levels, please be aware of this when attending Story Time.

We ask that you make it a point to be in the room (or in the Park) a few minutes before Story Time is scheduled to begin. This gives you and your child a chance to settle in before the program starts.

An important part of Story Time is interaction with your child. Please put your phone away and set it to vibrate while you are in story time. Please refrain from conversing with other parents during the story time; this can be very distracting for both the children and the Story Time leader.

The purpose of Story Time is to instill a love of language and reading. Please do not worry if you feel your child is not sitting still or paying attention during the program. All children are different: even those who are seemingly not paying attention or just observing will surprise you at home by modeling the behavior they learn at story time, perhaps by singing a favorite Story Time song or “reading” a book to you.

Due to the many children with food allergies and dietary restrictions, we ask that if you are bringing snacks with you that they are in a closed container and nut free. Please feel free to eat snacks when we are outside in the Park.

We all have bad days, and your child is no different. If need be, please take your child out of the Story Time area to calm down. Feel free to return to the class when you are able.

Story Time shouldn’t end when you leave the library. Take the books home with you and feel free to ask a Librarian for more suggestions for books and literacy ideas. Reading is fun!

We thank you for your understanding as we ensure that our programs are enjoyable for everyone who attends.
