Read, Sing, Talk, Play, Write, Repeat!
Each Story Time program includes a variety of stories, music, finger plays, flannel board stories, movement activities, and puppets that enhance early literacy skills. While stories are chosen with preschool children in mind, families with children of multiple ages are welcome to attend. At the Lester Public Library we believe you are never too old or too young to be read to. Story Time concludes with a simple process-based art project.
It is important to remember that a child’s brain develops faster during the early years and like a sponge, soaks up information willingly and with great enthusiasm. That is why it is remarkably important to begin reading aloud to your child from a very early age.

Story Time Etiquette
Please arrive on time.
Discuss polite and respectful manners with your children before arriving.
Be attentive and participate in the program; children are more likely to sing along and have fun if you are doing the same. Visit with friends after Story Time is over.
We do not expect silent, rapt attention, and please understand that it is NOT developmentally appropriate for a 0-3 year old to listen quietly for the whole session. That’s OK.
If your Story Time child wanders or becomes too restless, please leave the room with him/her so that others can enjoy the Story Time. Simply return when they have had a pleasant rest or appropriate run around in another room.
