December Storytimes and More

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.
