Children - Toddler Time


Developing a love of the written word can begin while your child is an infant. Babies who are read to are much more likely to read earlier, understand concepts better, and be faster learners than babies who do not have the chance to experience books. It is never too early or too late to begin reading to and with your children

  • Tuesday at 10 AM (see our Calendar of Events for a listings of the dates)
  • 30 minute sessions
  • 18 months – 3 years old
  • Theme changes weekly
  • Be sure to check out our Facebook page for more information on the subject and activities for the week.
  • Must be accompanied by an adult
  • You may register for the sessions by coming in to the library or filling out the form below. Registration is helpful but not required.
  • Enjoy songs, stories, fingerplays, and crafts during Toddler Time for children 18 months of age to 3 years. These sessions will last 25-30 minutes. Please be prompt.
  • This is a program that introduces the young child to books and other enrichment activities in the presence of their parent/adult. Older siblings, who can work/wait independently, may sit quietly in the library puzzle area.
  • Participating in this program is one of the first steps in introducing your child to reading and shows the importance the parent/adult places in this very important area of your child’s development. I am pleased that the library is able to work with you to be a part of your child’s reading experience.
  • While in the library, please take advantage of any of the materials the library has to offer to aid in these first steps of beginning reading.
  • For information, please call Krissy Short, the Children’s Librarian, at the library (682-5578).
  • Registration is helpful but not required.
