ABOUT THE LIBRARY

STORY TIMES

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.

STORY TIMES

Spring Story Times at the Gleason

Story time sign-up for the Spring Story Time sessions at the Gleason Public Library is in session. 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 spring session begins on March 31 and ends the week of May 19. There is no session the week of April public school vacation (April 21-25). The library is offering registered story time sessions for two age groups, 3 to 4 1/2 year olds and 4 to 6 year olds.
