Storytime in libraries

Library storytimes are generally aimed at two to five year olds and provide a fun and enjoyable introduction to books and libraries for young children.

Sharing books and stories with young children can help to build good language and listening skills and give them a head start when they begin school. Library storytimes can foster a life long love of reading and show children that it is a fun place to be.

Sessions are free and generally last 30 minutes.
