Some of my fondest childhood memories are the trips to the library with my mom. She was an avid reader and shared that love of books with my sister and me. So when I started having children, I was thrilled to share that same memory with them.

Storytimes are the perfect way to introduce the love of libraries and books to your child. Library storytimes are based on different weekly/monthly themes. They read related books and do crafts that match those themes.

Often, these libraries also have special events for homeschoolers, teens, movies and family game nights. Our public libraries are full of resources for anyone. We just need to reach out and use them! So, let’s start by taking our children to storytimes and foster that love of our libraries at an early age.

Below are the Triad libraries and their links. Check out their individual calendars to find out the specific dates and times of their storytimes.
