Story Times

Our story times are developed by trained staff and focus on the skills every child should know so that when they enter school they are ready to learn to read. Age appropriate books, songs, music, finger plays and flannel boards are used to capture the attention of the young child.

Our craft and activity sheets extend the story time experience and provide children a chance to develop their fine motor skills, build self-esteem and gain positive emotional responses to learning.

Summer story times begin the week of June 19. 

Central Library is close for renovation until 2018.
