Storytime programs introduce young children to books, rhymes, music, and peer interaction while building a foundation of pre-literacy skills and a life-long love of books and reading.

Our popular storytime sessions are fun and engaging for children and parents alike. Different story times focus on different age groups, but every storytime helps children and parents bond by participating in healthy, enriching activities together. Due to COVID-19 restrictions, we will hold storytime remotely. Regular storytime at the libraries will be back soon.
