Beginning June 15!

Each week, Ms. Tami puts together a fun, exciting, educational Story Time for you to take home! Each pack contains books, music suggestions, finger plays, math and science activities, and an art project. As always, our materials reinforce those five vital early literacy practices: Read, Sing, Talk, Play and Write!

Pick up a new pack each week. An adult with a valid library card must check out packs. One per family per week while supplies last. Each kit contains material for one child; we’ll provide extra supplies for additional children—just ask! (Geared for ages six and younger.)

  • June 15: Imagine your story if your home was a castle.
  • June 22: Imagine your story if you lived under the sea.
  • More to come!
