Tell Me A Story

Tell Me A Story

Fairy tales, puppet shows, nursery rhymes, and bedtime stories all have the ability to transport our imaginations with the power of storytelling. Listening to stories can increase a child’s vocabulary, help them to have the confidence to read to others, and increase their narrative skills (the ability to retell a story).

The Storytime Team is ready to read and sing and stretch to Head, Shoulders, Knees, and Toes! Storytimes begin on Tuesday, September 19 and can be experienced at each of our branches every week until Thursday, October 26. They are designed for children ages Birth through 5 years old. You can find the storytime team at these times and locations:

September is also National Library Card Sign-up Month, so it’s a great time to get your emerging reader their very own library card! Library cards can help children get excited about choosing their own books to read. Stop by the Circulation Desk at any of our branches to learn more.
