Why storytime?

  • It teaches children about books and the library.
  • It develops pre-reading and listening skills.
  • It provides group interaction with children of similar ages.
  • It teaches parents and caregivers how to develop literacy skills at home.

Participate, participate, participate – Be an active participant and model what you want your child to learn. Is the librarian clapping along? Clap, too, and encourage your child to clap. Sing along.

Attend the storytime for the right age group – You and your child will benefit the most when you attend the one best suited for the child’s age. If you’re not sure which group is best, please ask the Children’s Librarian.

Practice good storytime etiquette – Please help us create a great storytime environment -switch your cell phones to vibrate before the program starts, wait until the end of the program to chat with other adults, and quiet unhappy children away from the storytime area.
