Welcome to Storytime
These are fun sessions where we share stories, fingerplays, games, songs and some simple crafts. We are looking forward to spending the next seven weeks with your children, and we hope it will be a rewarding experience for them! At occasional storytime sessions we might have a treat for the children. We try to avoid candy at all costs and usually have fruit, cookies, crackers or cheese. If for any reason your child cannot have such a treat, please let us know in advance so that we can arrange something else for him or her.
CHECK US OUT!
Taking books home from the Library is an important part of storytime. Read the stories, talk about the pictures--make books and reading family activities! Areas to look for good books include: 398´s: folk and fairy tales; 500´s: animal, dinosaur and science books; 800´s: poetry and 200´s: Bible stories. Of course the picture book section is where you´ll find most of your selections, but don´t forget to check the juvenile fiction for chapter books to read to the entire family!
The Library does not close often, but if we do, we let the local radio and television stations know. If in doubt, call the Library before setting out.
