Join us at the library for stories, songs, and fun! Storytime encourages language development and fosters a love of books and a lifetime of learning. Parents and caregivers will learn about early literacy and get tips on how to help their child become ready to read. No registration is required. Siblings and guests are always welcome. The time you spend at storytime counts toward your summer reading to earn prizes! The last fall storytime is on Thursday, December 8 at 10:30am.

LittleBigRead is an informal program that pairs older kids (grades 6-12) with younger kids for one-on-one reading time. Younger kids can read to or be read to by older kids or they can take turns reading a book together. This program is meant to be a fun and no-pressure way to build a passion for reading for the fun of it. It is not a tutoring program or homework help. Books will be chosen by the readers from the library's collection or favorites can be brought from home. LittleBigRead meets weekly on Thursdays from 4:00 - 5:00 p.m., unless otherwise noted, on the youth side of the library. No registration is necessary.
