Early Literacy Programs at the Library

Baby Rhyme Time

The book cover for the book wonderful babies. There are four babies floating and holding balloons.

For children up to 18 months with a caregiver.

Why Baby Rhyme Time? We know that young children experience a high rate of brain development. This phase of rapid growth makes early childhood the ideal time to introduce early literacy supports.

We provide this support through Baby Rhyme Time, a parent-child program that features a playful approach to language development by sharing rhymes, songs, simple stories and early literacy messaging designed to help families create a literacy-rich home environment.

Toddler Time

For children 19-36 months with a caregiver.

Why Toddler Time? We know that children at this age are in a peak phase of language learning that is best supported by hearing many words (spoken, sung and read).

We provide this support through Toddler Time a parent-child program focused on enriched vocabulary and comprehension in age-appropriate stories, songs and rhymes. Early literacy messaging is shared with parents and caregivers to help families create a literacy-rich home environment.

Family Story Time

Why Family Story Time? We know that children learn best when they are having fun with the most important people in their lives.

We support this learning through Family Story Time which features creative presentations of stories through a variety of formats and techniques to provide a fun atmosphere that supports intergenerational learning.

For children up to 5 years and a caregiver, but siblings of all ages are welcome to attend.
