Story times at the library are a great way to foster a love of reading in your child. We encourage parents and caregivers to remain active participants during story time. You are your child's first and most important teacher, so help them strengthen their literacy and language skills by showing them how much fun reading, singing, and playing together can be! We aim to accomplish this during story time through singing and dancing, listening to books, practicing ASL words and phrases, coloring pages, and crafts.
Toddler Story Time
Wednesdays at 10:30 a.m.
Ages 1 to 3*
Preschool Story Time
Wednesdays at 11:15 a.m.

*If you are unsure whether or not your 3-year-old should be in Toddler or Preschool Story Time, we welcome parents and caregivers to attend both in order to gauge the child's interest and behavior.
Reading to Rover
Is your child a struggling or reluctant reader? Whether your child has special needs or simply wants the experience of reading to a canine companion, Reading to Rover is a great way to provide your child with a friendly, non-judgmental audience. Gracie and Bella are trained and certified therapy dogs who visit the library twice a month during the school year. Their human mom, Cindy, also takes them for visits to local hospitals.
Children will get 15 minutes to read with one of the dogs. A selection of books are provided in the room, but children are welcome to bring their own books from home or browse the library for books before their session begins.
Reading to Rover
For independent readers in 1st to 5th grades
2nd and 4th Wednesday of each month
4:00 p.m. - 5:00 p.m.
REGISTRATION IS REQUIRED

If you need to wind down with your little ones, pajama story time is a great place to start. This family friendly program is designed for parents and caregivers that are unable to attend the Wednesday morning story times. Both parent or caregiver and child are able to listen to advanced picture books to encourage lots of snuggles and giggles. The program ends with a simple coloring page but pajamas, blankets, stuffed animals, and woobies are highly encouraged.
