Join us for some January Story Time fun!
Story Time programs introduce young children to books, rhymes, songs, crafts, and other fun activities. Library Story Time incorporates the early literacy skills that children must master before they can learn to read. Story Times are designed for children 3-5 years old, though all ages are welcome. The program lasts approximately 45 minutes and caregivers are asked to participate with their children. Story Time is held in the Children's Department. This fall, Story Time will also be broadcast online, live, on Tuesdays at 10 am (see below for details).

Today's Story Time: Let's go to the beach! We will read Swimming with Dolphins and make a paper plate jellyfish craft.
Today's Book: Swimming with Dolphins written by Lambert Davis
Book Synopsis: "Let me tell you about something magical that happens from time to time on our island. Early in the morning, just after the sun rises, my mother and I go down to the beach and wait. We watch the ocean...and if we are lucky, we see dolphins." A young girl and her mother's day at the shore leads to an underwater adventure as they put on their snorkels and flippers to swim with a friendly pod of dolphins. Gliding and diving, spinning and leaping, the girl frolics with her dolphin friend and experiences the wonder and beauty of the underwater world. Factual backmatter included on last page.
