Storytimes To Go are intended for day care providers or parents that want to create a simple storytime for their children. We currently have ten Storytime themes to choose from. Library staff will put the plan and five books that match the theme into a book bag for you to pick up at the library. There is a limit of one Storytime theme per request. Please allow 3-4 days for your request to be processed.
We know it is easy to get overwhelmed when choosing books your kids will love. Our 4-part series called, “Raising Readers: Tips for Choosing Books for Children” can help. These age-related tips will help you navigate the library and will reinforce the importance of reading aloud. And remember, our librarians are always available to help.
