Baby Laptime – Mondays at 10:30 am
This 30-minute program is for our youngest visitors. Adults interact with their little person through simple stories, songs, rhymes, bounces and wiggles that are sure to bring out the smiles and giggles. Baby Laptime is designed for infants through age 2 and runs September through May. Join us on Mondays at 10:30 am.
Playgroup with Stories and Music – Wednesdays 10 am – Noon
The morning begins at 10 am with songs, stories and a simple snack (bring your own) on the alphabet rug. Around 10:30 am we’ll get out the toys for free play with friends in the library’s sunny and spacious Community Room. We have gross motor and fine motor toys, puzzles and activities for infants through preschool age children. Join us on Wednesdays, September through May.
Movers and Shakers Storytime – Fridays at 10:30 am
Frequent exposure to picture books not only entertain and delight children but also strengthens their vocabulary and their ability to make sense of the world. We’ll share fantastic new and classic picture books and work some early literacy magic into a child’s day. We’ll couple stories with simple songs and activities for some interactive moving and shaking. Toddlers and Preschoolers and their caregivers are welcome. September through May.
Storytime Outreach Visits to Richmond Childcare Providers
This outreach program brings storytime out into the community. Children and caregivers enjoy stories and music making with a focus on the early literacy skills necessary for strong reading readiness upon entering school. Bins of library books are dropped off and picked up every few weeks. If you operate a childcare business in Richmond and have not participated in this program in the past, contact Wendy at 434-3036 or firstname.lastname@example.org for more information and to sign up.
Weekly programs at the Library follow the CESU school district schedule for vacation days and weather closure days.
