Reading and telling stories with children has several benefits such as

  • Promotes brain development and imagination
  • Develops language and emotions
  • Strengthens relationships

During storytime, our librarians focus on using visuals and songs or rhymes to engage children in fun play that is both educational and entertaining. Parents are encouraged to join in and practice the hand motion to support their child’s creativity.
