More Than a Story

Story-time is often at the core of library programming. Here's a few reasons why:
  • Your child(ren) get experience in listening to another adult
  • They learn to pay attention to someone who's not their parent
  •  How to sit quietly while they are speaking
  • Experiencing the public performance of literature
  • Kids are potentially exposed to a diverse selection of authors, cultural backgrounds and narrative styles
  • Library storytime fosters a lifelong love for the library
