Story Times

Story time 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 story time sessions are fun and engaging for children and parents alike. Different story times focus on different age groups, but every story time helps children and parents bond by participating in healthy, enriching activities together.

Please note: There will be no storytimes at the Main Library until after we have moved into our new 21st Century Library and Community Learning Center. Stay tuned for updates!<--break->
