Miller Branch Storytimes

All library storytimes are currently virtual.  When in-person programming resumes, stoytime is an excellent way for young children and their adults to participate in an interactive, literacy-based experience at all four FSPL locations.  Storytimes feature stories, songs, puppetry, finger plays, manipulatives, flannel stories, and crafts. Not only is storytime fun, it's an excellent way for adults and caregivers to interact with their children while helping them build early literacy skills and laying the foundation for preparing children to learn to read.

Storytime

Storytime is for children of all ages and their adults.  Lasting about 30 minutes, children and their families will enjoy music, books, and early literacy activities chosen just for them.  A variety of literacy-based activities are included each week, such as stories, songs, puppetry, finger plays, flannel stories, manipulatives, and crafts. 

 

Laptime Storytime

A love of reading starts early.  Babies and their caregivers are invited to join the Miller Branch for a special storytime geared toward children 0 to 24 months old.  There will be rhymes, songs, simple stories, and lots of interactive fun!  Laptime Storytime is perfect for the attention spans of little ones, lasting about 20 minutes.
