Storytimes for babies, toddlers, and preschoolers are held throughout each week. All sessions consist of age-appropriate picture books, songs, fingerplays, poetry, and often include playtime and crafts. Storytimes inspire a love of books and reading in participants of all ages. Research confirms that reading success starts with young children enjoying library storytimes!
