Story times are every Tuesday at 10:00 am in the children’s area. Story time is for children 0-5 years old. Kids listen to stories, sing songs, and do literacy related activities and crafts. All children must be accompanied by an adult. At story time, parents and caregivers will receive a handout explaining what happened at story time that day, and how to encourage literacy development outside the library.

Our story time uses the five practices from Every Child Ready to Read to encourage early literacy. The five practices are talking, reading, writing, singing, and playing. These can also be used at home to encourage literacy development in children too young to attend school. Below is a description of the five practices.
