December Early Literacy Events

 

Storytime is one of the first interactions many children have with library service and we strive to make it fun, engaging, and educational for young children and the caregivers who bring them! In addition to sharing the joys of books and reading, storytime provides important early literacy skills through rhymes, finger plays, full body movement, and more! While children may think they’re just having fun and being silly, they are really learning important foundational skills to begin reading on their own.

Our district-wide early literacy services include ABC Mouse (available on library computers), TumbleBooks, and OverDrive Kids. Additionally, each branch provides monthly early literacy programming. Click here for branch locations and contact information.
