What is Storytime?

Storytime is an opportunity for parents to introduce their children to reading and language in a fun way. At Storytime, children have an opportunity to do activities that promote development and learning.

All programs are designed for parents to participate with their children; arrangements for school, daycare, or other group visits need to be made in advance.

We offer different types of Storytimes. See all of our Storytimes in our event calendar.

It's Babytime! Storytime for Babies

Babies love stories and songs! The stories we read at Babytime are short and engaging, and the babies enjoy moving with the music. Share time with your baby in a fun, confidence-building environment.

Babytime storytime is approximately 30 minutes or less; it’s designed for babies up to 18 months of age.

Toddler Storytime

Toddlers are busy—busy learning and growing. Storytime with your toddler is the perfect time to listen, learn, sing, move and play together. The stories are short, the activities are fun, and sometimes there are puppets!

Toddler storytime is 20 to 30 minutes long. It’s designed for children 18- to 36- months old.

Preschool Storytime

Preschool-aged kids are curious about everything. Storytime is a perfect way for preschoolers to listen and learn about the questions they ask.  Kids love singing familiar songs and doing fun activities. Parents and caregivers are invited to play along!

Preschool storytime is 30 to 45 minutes long. It’s geared toward 3- to 5- year olds.

Family Storytime

There’s always something fun happening at Family Storytime. We’ll read stories and learn about other good books to read. We sometimes may do crafts, listen to music, or sometimes even watch a puppet show together!

Family Storytime is about 45 minutes long. It’s for all ages.
