Introduce your child to a love of reading and the library, at our weekly Wednesday story times. 

Preschool Story Time is a read aloud program for children up to 5 years old (and their parents or caregivers).  It is designed to deliver the pre-literacy and early literacy skills that will prepare children to successfully learn to read once they enter school. These essential skills are presented in a fun package that includes stories, visuals, music, movement and rhyme. The activities from Preschool Story Time (such as rhymes & chants, songs, stretches, and even picture books) can easily be repeated at home, allowing parents and caregivers to play an active role in their child's early literacy learning!

For ages 2-5.

Don't forget to bring your library card so you can check out books to read!
Wednesday, December 17, 2014 - 11:00am
Stories, songs, and rhymes for ages 2-5, with their caregivers.

For safety's sake, there is a limit of 75 participants for each story time.

Remember -- there is a story time at 10 a.m. and another repeated at 11 a.m.

To schedule a class visit, please call 202-671-3125.
