Children - Story Hour


  • Thursdays at 10 A.M. (see our Calendar of Events for a listing of the dates)

  • 45 minute sessions

  • 3 – 5 years old

  • Parents must remain in the library.

  • You may register for the sessions by coming in to the library or filling out the form below. Registration is helpful but not required.

  • Be sure to check out our Facebook page for more information on the subject and activities for the week.

  • This program is for 3-5 year old children who are able to leave their adult/parent and participate in this program independently. The parent/adult will be asked to drop their child off at the Story Hour area, and remain in the library, but away from the children’s area. All children who participate must be toilet trained (not in diapers) and able to sit quietly.

  • Younger children who accompany the parent/adult to the library are the responsibility of the adult that brings them. It is not possible for the library staff to supervise these children. This is an excellent opportunity for the adult/parent to use this time to read to their younger children.

  • It is the goal of the library to provide positive reading experiences for children that will help them to realize the joy of reading. This is one example of how the library and parent/adult can work together to achieve this goal. While your child is participating in Story Hour, please take advantage of this time to explore the collection and check out any materials that may help you at home to continue these positive reading experiences.

  • For information, please call Krissy Short, the Children’s Librarian, at the library (682-5578).

  • To Register On-Line, please complete the form below. Registration is helpful but not required.
