Preschool Story Time

Preschool Story Time
 
Preschool Story Time is geared for children ages 3yo-6yo. We play with toys, ride the Library’s antique horses, drum out the letters of our name with help from a grown-up, look at the letter and number of the day, and use magnetic letters to spell out the word of the day. Books related to the theme of the week are read, instruments are used to sing the ABCs song, and children play with the Library’s bubble machine. Afterwards we put together a craft related to the theme of the day. This program is every Tuesday and Friday at 10:30am, excluding holidays.


Book Babies


 
Book Babies is geared for children 0yo-3yo. We sing nursery rhymes and other songs, tell Mother Goose stories, and use puppets and felt board cutouts. We drum out the letters in our names with help from grown-ups, play with the Library’s bubble machine and do a coloring page. This program usually lasts a half-hour and is on the Second Saturday of each month at 11am.

Come dressed in your pajamas and play with toys, ride the Library’s antique horses, drum out the letters of our name with help from a grown-up, look at the letter and number of the day, and use magnetic letters to spell out the word of the day.
