The Library Helps to Raise Readers from Birth On

It's never too early to start raising a reader, and the library has a number of early-literacy programs to help. We offer...

Storytimes (see our program page for exact time and branch information):

  • Mother Goose for babies
  • Toddler Time for 2 and 3 year olds
  • Alphabet Soup for all ages
  • Books Before Bedtime in the evenings
  • Saturday Tales on the weekend for working families.

Early Literacy Activity Centers @ England Run, Headquarters, Porter and Salem Church. Kids learn when they're having fun! Children and their caregivers are invited to explore the toys, blocks and letters that enhance the library experience and teach early reading skills through play and self-discovery.

The LEEP librarian visits daycares providing preschool storytimes and delivering books

Our Kids Jr. page has a number of booklists to help you find the right book for your child's age/stage and interests.
