Fall Story Time is Here!
The Appomattox Regional Library System hosts its story time series throughout the year. Join us for an entertaining and educational half hour of books, songs and rhymes with Youth Services staff Heather Maury, and Jeanine Albiges, Tyesha Evans, Clair Mire.
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.
Baby and Me
A story time for babies and their caretakers. A great introduction for you and your new family member to the wonderful world of books, rhymes and songs. For babies ages birth to 18 months old, this is a 6-week program limited to 15 babies and will last approximately 30 minutes.
