Storytime Guidelines

  2. Visit the restroom before storytime begins.
  3. Please be considerate. Take crying or disruptive children out of the story room.
  4. Listen, listen, listen! Parents and children should be as quiet as possible while the storyteller is speaking. Each storytime incorporates fingerplays, songs, and movement, so you’ll have plenty of time to shake out your sillies!
  5. Parents should sit with children under three to prevent distractions.
  6. Enjoy yourselves. Each program is designed to introduce kids to the pleasures of reading. Books and libraries are fun!
