The purpose of storytime is to develop early literacy skills and create a love of reading at an early age.  Caregivers are an important part of fostering these skills and are encouraged to actively participate with their child.  Current storytimes are listed below.
  • Virtual Storytime via Zoom! - All ages are welcome to join us for virtual storytime.  Though we can't meet in person, we can still sing songs, read books, and build our literacy skills virtually.  Zoom is a video chat program that allows you to join with video and/or audio through a computer, tablet, or phone.

Five golden autumn leaves

high up in the tree.

The wind blew!

The leaves shook!

And one fell down for me!

Keep counting down until you have no more leaves!

One little orange fish

swimming in the water,

swimming in the water,

One little orange fish

swimming in the water.
