Weekly Events at the Library
Mondays, November 4th and 18th at 9:15am and 10:00am – Toddler Storytime – 18 months to 3 years old
Introduces children to books with simple language and predictable plots. This program also introduces toddlers to story time manners by helping them build listening skills and practice the self-control needed to be a good audience. Toddler Time is most appropriate for children that are not yet ready to sit for long periods of time and listen to stories that are more complex. Each Toddler Time is about 20 minutes long and concludes with a coloring activity. This program takes place in the Lobby Meeting Room and does not require a ticket or registration.
Tuesdays, November 5th, 12th, and 19th at 10:00am and 10:30am – Preschooler Storytime – 3 years old and up
Provides a place for children to practice the story time manners they have learned in Toddler Storytime. Children in Preschooler Storytime are expected to sit or stand still, listen to the storyteller, and practice self-control for longer periods of time than required during Toddler Storytime. Stories are longer and activities are more complex. Children may practice their independence by attending Preschooler Storytime without their caregiver (caregiver must remain on the first floor of the library at all times). Preschool Storytime lasts about 30 minutes. This program takes place in the Lobby Meeting Room and does not require a ticket or registration.
Wednesdays, November 6th, 13th, and 20th at 9:15am and 9:45am – Baby & Me – Birth to 18 months
