Early Learning at the Library

Early Learning at the Library


Storytime introduces the child to the best in children's books. Because a child responds naturally to the rhythm of words and the repetition of sounds, storytimes include nursery rhymes, poetry, fingerplays and songs. The child who attends storytime regularly will develop an enjoyment and appreciation of books, the ability to concentrate, and the ability to participate in group activities.

Storycraft features the retelling of one of storytime's most popular books and a fun craft based on the book.  Scribbling, coloring, drawing, painting, cutting, and gluing help build the hand-eye coordination and fine motor skills needed to be ready to write letters, words, and sentences.

Play Date provides opportunities for interactive play! Playing is a natural way for children to learn about the world around them. Through each playful interaction, they are learning and using language. This helps them to be able to express themselves and become ready to learn to read.
