Story Times are ongoing for ages 0-6 years old. Story times consist of age-appropriate stories, rhymes, and fingerplays. Crafts are included in the programs for ages 3-6. Registration for fall, winter and spring sessions is required.
Participation in a library story time program is a great way to introduce new books to your child, help them foster a love of reading, and give them a chance to make new friends. They are also fun and sometimes crafty too.
Fall Story Times
Story time sign-up for the Fall Story Time sessions at the Gleason Public Library will begin on Monday, September 22nd.
Story times encourage literacy skills and language development. The development of early literacy skills is important for reading success when a child enters school. Story time is fun and interactive with stories, finger plays and crafts.
The fall session begins on October 6 and ends the week of December 8. The library is offering registered story time sessions for two age groups, 3 – 4 1/2 year olds and 4 to 6 year olds, and drop in story time for children ages three and under.
