Event Details

REGISTRATION FOR THIS STORYTIME WILL BEGIN AT 4PM ON THURSDAY, JULY 24.


Toddler Storytime (ages 2-3)

Thursdays at 11:15am

Stories & songs for toddlers and their caregivers to enjoy together!  Listen along, clap along, sing along with a half-hour of early learning fun, and then talk about it together throughout the day!

This registration covers all of our Thursday sessions in AUGUST.

Please register your child's name.  No need to register parent or caregiver.  Be sure to bring your ticket with you to storytime.

Please observe our Storytime Guidelines:

  • Chairs are reserved for people with special needs.  Please sit on the floor & participate with your child!
  • If your child begins to cry, please take him or her out of the room. It’s okay to leave early for any reason.
  • Please save your adult conversations & electronic devices for after storytime.  Storytime is for the grown-ups, too!
  • To clarify: no electronic devices.  This is an adult-child activity.
  • Sick?  Please stay home!


Some Benefits of Toddler Storytimes

Fosters pre-reading skills

Increases vocabulary

Provides socialization with other children

 Provides a fun bonding activity between children & their grown-ups

 Establishes the foundation to become a life-long reader

 

 

How to Get the Most Out of Storytime:

PARTICIPATE!   Sit with your children, interact with them, help them notice details in the stories, and model the songs & fingerplays.  

PRACTICE GOOD STORYTIME ETIQUETTE.   Please help us create a great storytime environment.  Arrive early, silence & stow away electronic devices before the program starts, and save chat with other adults until after the program is over.  Quiet unhappy children away from the storytime area; it’s fine to leave quietly & try again next time!

EXTEND THE EXPERIENCE!  Stay at the library a while and read aloud to your child, discussing the action on the pages as you along.  Check out a few books, perhaps even books like the ones shared at storytime.  Talk about books & storytime together throughout the week, and sing the songs.  You’ll be raising a reader!
