A Note for Parents & Caregivers:
Storytime is not just for kids! Our Storytimes are designed to demonstrate to parents how to teach early literacy skills. Please sit with your child and participate even if your child is shy. Children learn by example, and you are their best role model. If your child does become disruptive, feel free to leave the room together and return when he/she has calmed down. If you have children in more than one storytime age group, please visit with one of our youth services staff to determine the program that will best serve you and your children.
