Preschool Storytime Information
What is Preschool Storytime?
Preschool storytime is a gathering of 3- to 6-year-olds on Tuesday evenings and Wednesday mornings for the purpose of enjoying books and strengthening early literacy skills. Each storytime will consist of books read aloud, songs, movement activities, crafts, and more.
Storytime occurs year-round except when the library building is closed. The storytime schedule is subject to change and notice of these changes will be posted ahead of time in the library.
Families can register for storytime at the library's front desk. Pre-registration is appreciated but not required. One-time visitors are always welcome! Registration information allows us to track statistics about storytime attendance and maintain up-to-date contact information.
- Parents and caregivers are encouraged to attend and participate in storytime with their children. The librarian will share and model literacy activities that you can replicate with your children at home. Similarly, when children see adults engaged in books and literacy activities, they are more likely to enjoy and seek out these activities themselves. Parents and caregivers play an essential role in their children's early literacy development.
- If a child becomes upset during storytime, feel free to leave the storytime room with the child and return when the child is calmer.
- If the parent or caregiver is unable to stay in the storytime room with the child, please inform the Youth Services Librarian or storytime leader.
- Library staff is unable to supervise children before and after storytime. (Refer to the Dwight Foster Public Library's Unattended Children Policy.)
