The beginning of September marks the start of storytime at the library. Weekly storytime sessions begin Thursday, September 1st from 5:30 to 6:15 p.m. and continue through the school year. Preschool age children are invited to attend the Thursday sessions each week. Children may enroll in storytime anytime after their third birthday. Those joining at five years of age, may continue throughout the school year, even after turning six. The new Storytime Coordinator will be incorporating reading, games, crafts and so much more into the weekly themed sessions. Story times for September will center on outdoor adventures and fun with bears. Storytime provides many benefits exposing participants to good literature and library resources while helping them grow in school readiness skills such as listening, observation, reasoning, familiarity with the flow of written language, vocabulary, and social skills, all in a fun, non-threatening environment. For those enrolled in preschool, outreach sessions will be held at Headstart, Cornerstone Day Care, and Park School. For more information or to enroll your child in storytime held at the library, simply stop by the circulation desk at the library or call 257-2961.
