Most storytimes are designed for children up to about age six. We encourage parents and caregivers to participate along with their children, singing, dancing, doing fingerplays, making crafts, etc.
It is normal for young children to wiggle, make noise, or play during storytime as their attention spans develop. Children who are disrupting the storytime experience for others should be taken out of the room until they are more settled. We have backyard space that is perfect for this.
We ask that parents and caregivers refrain from talking to each other and using their phones during storytime to set a good example for the children.
Parents and caregivers are responsible for the safety of their children in the library. Children age six and under must always have an adult within sight. Children 7 and 8 must always have an adult in the library.
Occasionally age limits will apply to children’s programs.
