Who loves storytime as much as the kids? Moms and Dads. We’ve heard many parents and caregivers ask about more storytimes at Wright Memorial Public Library and we’ve listened. So starting in December we are adding three additional storytimes to the already popular Books and Blocks currently on Fridays at 10:30 a.m.
Mondays at 10:30 a.m. we will host Baby Story Time for ages 0-18 months. Tuesdays at 10:30 a.m. will be Terrific Tales for ages 3-5. A new program, beginning in January, will be Playful Stories, Wednesdays at 6:30 p.m. Playful Stories will feature classic fables and creative play for Preschool through Third Grade.
