If your child has moved beyond looking at the pictures alone in a children's book and can understand the story told in the words and pictures of a children's book, your child is probably ready. Discuss story time with your child before you come. Let him or her know they are expected to sit and listen while the story is being read, but also there will be time to sing, make a craft, visit with friends, and select some books to check out. Stay close and enjoy the stories too.
Monica Rasco, the library's children and youth specialist, prepares and conducts Pre-school Story Time.
If your group (of 10 or more) is unable to attend a regularly scheduled story time session please contact the library to arrange a program either at the library or off site. Child Care Centers, school groups, parenting groups, home school groups and others are invited.
