Story Times Start Soon!

If you'd like to sign up for a story time, choose the appropriate one and call me or email me your child's name and age, and your name and phone number.

Story Times will run Sept. 12 through Oct. 21 at the Seabrook Library. The following sessions are scheduled:

Tuesday, 10:30am. Toddlers: 1-2 year olds.
Wednesday, 3:30pm. 4-6s On Their Own: 4-6 year olds.
Thursday, 11:00am. 2s and 3s With Parents: 2-3 year olds.
Friday, 11:00am. 3s and 4s On Their Own: 3-4 year olds.

Each Story Time is different:
The Toddlers group will have mostly songs and fingerplays or rhymes, with a very simple book, maybe two. Then the little ones will play while the grown-ups have coffee and tea and a little time to socialize.
The 2s and 3s With Parents Story Time is slightly more advanced, with some songs and fingerplays, but we’ll also introduce picture books and ask a few simple questions. Instead of play time, this group will make a small craft at the end.
3s and 4s On Their Own will follow the same format, but while they’re in story time, their parents will have a chance to select their own library materials.
The 4-6s On Their Own group will have a couple songs or fingerplays, but most of the time will be spent reading and talking about the stories while their parents have a chance to select their own materials. They will also have a craft at the end.

There will be a different theme each week, from apples to Halloween, etc. Our space is limited, so please call to sign up—these limits exist not only because of space but also so that each child will have the best Story Time experience possible. Call 474-2044 or email to sign up.
