There are many benefits to attending storytime including social and emotional growth and development, reading and listening skills, expanding children’s minds, introducing them to new concepts and cultures, and most importantly developing a lifelong love of reading and books. Plus it’s just plain FUN!

Our weekly storytimes run in sessions from the middle of September to the beginning of May.  Please check our Events Calendar for the specific dates that storytime is scheduled.
