Storytimes and Workshops at MRL

 

Storytimes introduce children to children’s literature and provide a shared group experience for them. Storytimes acquaint children with a wide range of books, folktales and legends, and encourages development of life-long reading interests. Reading is the key to success in life. It is our goal to provide an enjoyable and rewarding experience for your children when they attend our programs and to assist them in developing a love for reading.

Story Time is a program designed as a shared library experience for children and their caregiver. The librarian will share the best in children's literature and illustration, and will enhance the story time with songs, fingerplays, and flannelboard. In addition to hearing enriching literature, we will reinforce traditional pre-school concepts such as counting, identifying colors, animal names, etc. Adults who accompany children are encouraged to actively participate as a model for their child. It is our goal to provide an educational experience that is also entertaining, and to nurture an early love of books and reading.
