Spring Story Time starts on March 24th!

Spring Story Time begins March 24th!

The Appomattox Regional Library System hosts story time series throughout the year. Join us for an entertaining and educational half hour of books, songs and rhymes Youth Services Manager Tara Franzetti and Youth Services Assistant Ann Moore.

Story time programs aim to instill a love of reading by encouraging parents and other special adults to read aloud to children.   Activities in story time promote brain and language development for children from birth to age 5. At story time, children and caregivers are introduced to six early literacy skills that are essential for learning to read including print motivation, narrative skills, phonological awareness, vocabulary, letter knowledge, and print awareness.
