Storytime

Storytime is a five-week series of half-hour programs designed for children 3 to 5.  Storytime provides a structured literature-based opportunity for children to gain independence.  Parents and caregivers may use Storytime to fill their own library needs or may be present in the room to observe or participate. Extended conversations with other parents are discouraged in the Storytime space. To best serve our young listeners, sessions are divided by age.

Register online, or call the Children’s desk at (717) 533-6555 ext. 3708.
