Storytime Programs
Tiny Tots, Toddlers & Pre-K Story Time
Join us every week for Virtual Storytime!   

Bedtime Storytime every Monday at 7:00 pm. 
Every Tuesday at 10:30 enjoy stories, songs, counting, dancing, and a great way for parent interaction with your little one. This program is designed to build early language and literacy foundations in children. Read With Me Storytime is every Wednesday at 10:30 that provides a closer interaction for enjoying the stories. Storytime Craft Days are held every other Tuesday and is designed especially with the developmental tasks of toddlers in mine. Tiny Tots Lapsit Storytime held Thursdays at 10:30. This program is designed for ages 0 - 2 and is a time to bond with your child as he/she sits in your lap and encourages early development in language and learning skills through songs, rhymes, tickles, bounces, and books.  Follow the calendar for craft dates. Craft kits will be available for pickup at the Library at least a week prior to craft day. 

All Storytimes are scheduled weekly on the Library Facebook page.
Tune in Live weekly, can't meet with us live, no worries all sessions are recorded and post immediately after each event.
