Ready to Read Story Time takes place on Wednesdays from 10:30 – 11:30 a.m. These sessions are for kids ages 3 – 5 and focus on language development, social skills, vocabulary, and creativity. In addition, children can gain early literacy skills through reading, talking, singing, writing, creating, and playing. And this also creates an interest in independent learning and reading for kids.

Baby Boost Story Time is for children age 2 and younger. Each Friday from 10:30 – 11:30 a.m., these story times provide an opportunity for babies, toddlers, and their caregivers to interact together. Also, it helps foster emotional connections as they develop language and social skills, while creating positive connections with literacy, learning, and reading.

Teeter Tots Story Time is a new story time for little ones too young for Ready to Read Storytime, but too advanced for Baby Boost Story Time. It takes place on the third Thursday of the month from 10:15 – 11:15 a.m.
