Our goal is to encourage reading to your child and make reading an enjoyable part of your child’s life. Babies learn through interaction, touching, feeling, grabbing, moving, and doing the same thing over and over again. Bringing babies to a story time at your library helps them to develop a familiarity with libraries, books, words, music, routine, and structure. It is also an introduction to early social skills as they interact with other children and adults. During Baby Reads, we will sing songs, learn rhymes, and read books to help cultivate new readers. We will end each session with some time for free play and interaction.
Recommended for ages 15 months to 3 years, though children of all ages are welcome. Enjoy simple songs, creative movement, short stories and more which will all enhance the early literacy skills in your toddler’s life. Interaction and participation are encouraged.
Recommended for ages 3 to 5 years, though children of all ages are welcome. Preschoolers will enjoy longer stories, more challenging activities, creative movement and songs. Don’t forget about dancing! Be ready to wiggle, jiggle and read! Interaction and participation are encouraged.

Reading with Morgan
Morgan is a cream colored standard poodle. She was born on April Fools’ Day, 2006. She is a certified and insured therapy dog with Therapy Dogs International. Although she has visited an assisted living facility, she prefers young people especially when they read to her. When a child practices reading out loud to Morgan, she usually lies down and goes to sleep. Each session is one-on-one.
We supply the LEGOs and you supply the imagination. Each week there will be a challenge/theme, but you are more than welcome to build your own, unique creations.
