  2. Toddler Story Time

    October 2, 2018, 9:30 AM - 9:50 AM @ Children's Library Story Room

    This story time focuses on songs and books because we are teaching children to love and appreciate stories, and we are also helping them learn how to attend a library story time. Singing also helps develop language, sounds, and patterns, which all builds on your child's early literacy skills. There are no puppets used during Toddler Story Time so that the focus can be on the stories, songs, and books.
