Build your child’s early literacy skills by attending storytime and other educational programs at the library! Storytime helps parents and caregivers foster a lifelong love of books and reading in their children. Parents and caregivers can help children get ready to read through five simple activities: read, write, sing, talk, and play.

  • Musical Me (birth-5 years old)
    • Sing, dance, and play! A high-energy music and movement program for young children with their caregivers.
  • Lil’ Bookworms (birth-5 years old)
    • An interactive storytime featuring books, songs, crafts and finger plays with lots of time for play afterwards. This program takes place on the first three Wednesdays of each month at 10:30 a.m. in the Peck Room.
  • 1,000 Books Before Kindergarten

    • Drop In, Hang Out
      Drop in when you can. Hang out as long as you like. Each week you’ll find hands-on, developmentally appropriate activities to engage you and your child. Available all week in the Children’s Department (Monday-Saturday) during open hours. No registration is required.
    • Read to a Therapy Dog
      Therapy dogs from Healers with Halos are specially trained to sit and listen patiently to children as they practice their reading skills. Check our calendar for upcoming dates.
    • Afterschool Programs
