Storytimes resume in September!
For children aged 18 to 36 months and their parents or caregivers. During Toddler Time, a librarian reads aloud and leads adult-child pairs in activities. Research indicates the importance of the adult-child bond in building early literacy. Toddler Time also supports early literacy by building vocabulary and sharing age-appropriate literature in an atmosphere of fun, engaging activity.
Lincoln City Libraries presents its popular preschool storytimes at all library locations. Preschool Storytime is a half-hour of books and activities for children ages three, four and five.
