Storytime at the Library

Join us with your little ones for stories, songs and fun! Storytime is a fun, inclusive and interactive event that incorporates reading, singing, movement and wordplay to help promote reading and communication skills early on, while celebrating and supporting the cultural and linguistic diversity of our communities. Storytime promotes the joy of reading and helps to develop early literacy skills. It also...

  • Demonstrates that books and reading are fun
  • Develops listening and pre-reading skills
  • Increases vocabulary
  • Provides a bonding activity between children and adults
