The early literacy practices featured each week help build the foundation for a lifelong love of reading and learning. Story Time offers caregivers and parents an opportunity to experience early literacy practices in action, discover great books and resources for home use, and socialize with other parents after Story Time. There is something new each week! Sign-up is not required. Story Time is held on Tuesday evenings, Wednesday mornings, and Friday mornings. Morning sessions are at 10:45 and evening sessions are at 5:30 p.m. Occasionally, the library will cancel Story Time in advance due to scheduling conflicts or holidays.
