Story Times

Babygarten Story Time

Suggested for Ages 0 - 2

We welcome parents and caregivers of infants and toddlers to come sing songs, and popular nursery rhymes, together!
A simple story geared towards the children's age group will be read aloud.

Physical interaction is extremely important in the early stages of child development, and this story time not only encourages adult/child interaction, but also builds the healthy habit of reading aloud to your child.

Due to the short attention spans of this young age group, this story time will last about 20 minutes, with time for caregivers to socialize together afterwards while children play with toys that are provided.

Babygarten Stoy Time will be held on Tuesdays at 10:30 AM.

It will be OUTSIDE on the Eastman Library Plaza (area just outside the library front doors).
So please take the necessary steps to dress accordingly (i.e. jackets in the fall, etc.), and bring chairs/umbrellas.

If inclement weather occurs, we will make arrangements to move Story Time inside, or cancel for the day and offer it virtually on our private FB Group Page:

Longview Public Library Online Programs and Events.

Videos will remain available for viewing for as long as publishers allow, so watch when you have the chance!

Story time opens with a time of singing beloved childhood songs and nursery rhymes, followed by a newly-published book being read aloud.

Children will then enjoy activities and crafts geared towards helping them to imagine, create, and grow!
This story time lasts about 30 minutes.
