We welcome all families to our early literacy programs, no registration or library cards necessary. Attend whatever program fits your family best; you are welcome to try out different ones. We only have a few suggestions for attendees so everyone can have the most enjoyable Storytime experience.
By participating and interacting with your child at Storytime, you are setting them up with great early literacy skills. They also love to interact and play with you!
Some children may take a few sessions to participate, or some children like to just observe. This is entirely ok. You may often find them repeating the songs and fingerplays at home where they are more comfortable, even when you thought they were not paying attention.
If your child is not enjoying Storytime, try out our early learning area for a few minutes and come back to the circle when they are ready. We want reading to always be an enjoyable experience for children.
Please keep your child from obstructing the Storytime of others. Jumping and dancing is ok and encouraged during songs and rhymes, but not when it bothers other attendees.
*Please keep cell phones on silent and put away adult conversations until after Storytime. We love that you are mingling with other parents and provide playtime afterwards for this exact purpose.
