Weekly Children’s Programs
No one ever regrets taking their child to storytime. We offer three weekly programs for young children. Choose the one that’s right for your child and schedule. While the programs are planned with the ages listed in mind, older and younger children are always welcome. No registration is required.
- Baby Laptime This short storytime is for babies ages 0 – 24 months and their grownups. We will share the magic of stories, songs, rhymes, bounces and fingerplays designed to introduce these youngest children to color, sounds, fine motor skills, and body movement. No registration is required. Join the fun on Mondays at 10:30 am.
- Storytime This storytime is for children age 2 – 5. One of the best things you can do for you child is introduce them to the wonderful world of books. We’ll share excellent picture books both new and old as well as the classics at this storytime on Wednesdays at 10:30 am.
- Early Bird Math Storytime This storytime is for children ages 2 – 5. We will explore numbers, shapes, patterns and sets through books, songs, rhymes and games. This fun, interactive storytime happens in the community room every Friday at 11 am.
- Storytime Outreach Program Offered to Richmond childcare centers and homecare providers. This traveling storytime addresses the six specific early literacy skills that are recommended by the national research council and endorsed by the Vermont Department of Libraries. Call or email the Library to find out if your child’s provider participates in this program or to request more information if you are a new provider in town.
