Daycares and Groups

If you are interested in bringing a group of children to the library Storytime, please contact your local librarian in advance to ensure we are prepared for your group.

Why It Matters

Storytime helps children develop a variety of early literacy skills, such as vocabulary expansion, background knowledge and more. We help kids learn that reading is fun and that the library is a special place by instilling a life-long love of learning and reading on early on. Plus, children learn how to participate in a group setting, which is helpful when it’s time for them to be part of a classroom.

Storytime is also helpful for parents, as each week you will learn learn new songs, rhymes and stories to share with your children. You will also be exposed to new authors, subjects and creative projects and you may develop a support system with other parents and caregivers who attend.
