Story Times at Northwest Branch Library

The Northwest Branch Library offers regular story times for our youngest customer. Story time is an excellent way to bond with your child, boost their vocabulary, and hopefully raise a lifelong reader. Studies have shown that regularly reading to your child can increase their attention span, boost their emotional intelligence, and flex their imagination. Story time programs include Baby Giggles & Baby Wiggles, Toddler Time, and Preschool Story Time. Join us for stories, songs, finger plays and playtime. Please be sure to pick up a ticket at Reference Desk 30 minutes in advance. To view the times and dates of active story time programs, please click here.
