Storytime is Coming to the Library!

I’ve missed all my young friends and will be happy to see them again when the Library District kicks off the Fall session of Storytime! There has been a change in the time for two of our Storytime programs. The Dillsboro Storytime will still take place on Tuesdays, but will now begin at 10:30 AM. The Aurora Storytimes will be on Wednesdays with sessions at 10:30 AM or 1 PM. Each week’s program will be filled with stories, poems, songs, and a craft or activity. This program is for ages 3-6 and we do ask that you register your child in advance, so I know approximately how many crafts to prepare.

Storytimes are a great chance for your child to get comfortable listening to stories in a group and to interact with other kids. I plan the programs using the principles of the American Library Association’s Every Child Ready to Read Program which emphasizes the following activities: Reading, Writing, Singing, Talking, and Playing. These programs also provide a time for you to connect with other parents of young children.

We’ll be getting started on September 5th and 6th with a PIG theme!
