Our Toddler Tales Story Times are specially tailored for young book lovers and their caregivers. These are open story times and there is no registration needed or residency requirement. Please keep in mind that for this story time our staff selects books, songs, and activities which are appropriate for 2 to 4 year old children. Younger children may be frustrated by projects which are beyond their skill.
Each story time usually has a theme. We pick 2 to 4 stories which compliment that theme and some finger plays, rhymes, or songs. During the stories we encourage children to interact with the library staff reading/telling the stories. We often ask questions, answer questions, ask for help, etc. Our goal is not a classroom atmosphere, but a fun and pleasant time spent at the library learning and growing.
Story Time Tips:
Please try to be on time. This is not only courteous to the storyteller, but it helps the children focus and enjoy the story time.
Don’t stress if your child cannot ‘sit still’ through the whole story time. If your child needs to roam about the room, let them. It really is OK with us.
We love having the caregivers be part of our story time. Be present and focus on the stories or craft. If you show that you value focusing on the stories or activities, the child you are with will pick up on that and begin to learn to focus on those activities.
