Storytime Fun

Once upon a timeSummer's done and the kids are back in school, but the library still has fun planned for the little ones.  The Parker Williams Branch Library offers two storytimes every week, year-round.  On Wednesdays there's Preschool Storytime at 10:30am.  This program is for children ages 3-6.  We read stories, sing songs, and make a simple craft.  On Thursdays there's Toddler Time.  This program is intended for babies and toddlers under 3 years old.  We read short stories, sing songs, play with the parachute, and blow bubbles.

2011 ReaderNation Winner

Since her daughter was participating in the program for children,  Ms. Miller felt she could set a good example and encourage her daughter by also participating.
