Preschoolers engage with books and activities that encourage language and pre-reading skills. Hear stories, sing songs, and develop the skills needed to become a successful reader and succeed in school. Bring ideas home that help continue learning through everyday activities. For ages 3-5 (with a favorite adult).
Parents and children are invited to stay and get acquainted after storytime. We will put out toys for the children to play with while the adults chat.
*Please Note: On the 2nd Thursday of each month, we will have a special storytime with Children's Discovery Museum during Preschool Storytime. On the 3rd Thursday of each month, we will have a bilingual storytime during Preschool Storytime.
