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 Tess
Tess is a non-judgmental friend who won’t laugh at you if you make a mistake or stumble over a word. Reading with her helps young readers build confidence and have fun with reading! Tess will lie down next to you and enjoy the story right along with you!
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.
