Each Tuesday at 10:30 and Thursday at 1:30. Story Time is geared for pre-schoolers through Kindergarten. Each session includes music, readiness games, Show ‘n Tell, a story and craft time.
Studies show that children who are routinely read to from a young age develop improved language skills and an increased interest in reading which will help them throughout their life. We also encourage children to read through our 1,000 Books Before Kindergarten program.

Bring your child (pre-k – 5th grade) to sign up the first week of the reading program. You will be given a sheet of weekly reading slips to track your child’s reading minutes. When slips are turned in weekly, children will get a small prize and a progress sticker that will go towards a completion prize after the Summer Reading Program is over! The completion prize for our 2018 Summer Reading Program will be a WonderLab ticket for each qualifying child that finishes the program! Children that are too little to read may be read to. Audio books and picture books most certainly count!
Join us for Mix it up Mondays, Crafty Tuesdays, Theme Thursdays, and Special Guest Fridays!
