Baby & Me storytime is designed to promote early literacy for babies 0-12 months. The first 30 minutes includes songs, a simple story, fingerplays and nursery rhymes followed by 30 minutes of play. Please bring a blanket for your little one!

Little Ones (Ages 1-3) - Tuesdays at 10:30 am in Redwood Room
Little Ones Storytime invites children and their caregivers to wiggle, rhyme, and sing with diverse books, songs, and fingerplays that encourage language, play, and exploration. This storytime is geared for toddlers 1 to 3 years of age and their parents/caregivers, but all children are welcome. 

Preschool (Ages 3-5) - Thursdays at 10:30 am in Redwood Room
Preschool storytime features fun books, action/movements, songs, and fingerplays to help your child develop early literacy skills. Parents/caregivers are encouraged to sing and move with their child for the most enjoyable experience! Space is limited so please leave strollers, wagons and other wheels outside the meeting room. Program length is approximately 25 minutes. 

Family Storytime (All ages) - Wednesdays at 7:00 pm in Redwood Room & Saturdays at 10:30 am in Redwood Room
Children of all ages and their favorite adult are welcome to enjoy silly songs, fingerplays, and longer stories geared to children ages 3 and older. Family storytime fills up quickly, so we ask that you park strollers, wagons, and other wheeled 'vehicles' outside the meeting room. Program length is approximately 30 minutes.  

*Please note that Storytime schedules are seasonal and there may be occasional breaks throughout the year. Consult the library's Kids Calendar to ensure that Storytime is in session, or call Youth Services at 1-408-615-2925 for more information.
