After a short break storytimes return to the Children's Room at the Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. Library.
We offer storytimes for all ages and each storytime is followed by Stay and Play time. Here is our schedule starting in January of 2013.
Baby Lapsit: Fridays at 11:30AM starting January 4. This is a special storytime just for babies not yet walking. Come sing and play with words, rhymes and dancing! This informal program for babies and their parents/caregivers introduces the pleasures of the library to babies and their favorite adults!
Toddler Storytimes: Tuesdays at 11:30 starting January 8. Two and three year olds with a parent/caregiver will love this weekly storytime which includes movement, books and rhymes to encourage early literacy.
Family Storytimes: Wednesdays at 4:00PM starting January 2 and Saturdays at 11:00AM starting on January 5. Children of all ages will enjoy this weekly storytime which includes stories, songs, fingerplays and rhymes. A special movement activity using scarves, sticks, shakers and more is always included in this fun storytime! Join us as we teach children the love of reading and the pleasures of the library.
Stay and Play follows each of our storytimes. During Stay and Play, toys are brought out for children to play with. Parents are invited to play with their children for some bonding time but it is also a great way to interact with other adults, make connections and perhaps learn some new parenting tips.
Storytimes at the Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. Library will return in January 2012. During storytimes children listen to stories, do fingerplays, sing, dance, make new friends, and learn how much fun reading is and what a great place the library is. Bring your child and join the fun.

Family Storytime (All Ages) - Wednesdays from 4:00 - 4:30PM
Family Storytime (All Ages) - Saturdays from 11:00 - 11:30

All of our storytimes are also followed by a half hour of Stay and Play. During Stay and Play, toys are brought out for the children to play with. Parents are invited to play with their children or it is also a great time to interact with other adults, make connections and perhaps learn some parenting tips.
