Story Times

Why Story Time? A good story time provides the opportunity to bring together young children and books in a joyous, meaningful situation. The Children’s Staff looks forward to introducing you and your child to the world of children’s literature. In addition to helping foster the love of reading and books, our story times will also focus on helping your child get ready to read. Research shows that children develop pre-reading skills years before they begin school.

Story times take place from September – April.
