This is an active storytime for toddlers. A librarian will read picture books, parents will read short books together with kids, and we’ll have lots of action rhymes and songs so your little wiggleworm can get all the wiggles out!

Preschool Story Train

Ages 3+ years

Tuesdays | 11 AM

Fridays | 10 AM

This lively storytime features longer picture books, more complex action songs, and activities with directions to follow. Children may participate independently.

Learning is fun!

Storytime activities are based in neuroscience. By moving their arms and legs across their bodies, exploring rhyming words and songs, following directions, and interacting with books, kids are actually preparing their brains to learn to read. If you would like more early literacy tips, please ask a librarian the next time you visit. We love to talk about learning!
