Let's Read! Early Literacy Storytimes for Children
Early literacy storytimes introduce activities to help kids develop a love of books and skills that prepare them for reading and life.  A child who enters kindergarten with a strong vocabulary, a love of books, and a familiarity with playing with words has a definite advantage. You can help those skills develop! Check out books from your library to read together and take advantage of all the storytimes that resume on June 12.
