Winter & Spring 2016 Storytime Programs at Escondido Public Library

Escondido, CA – Escondido Public Library offers a variety of storytime programs in winter and spring 2016, designed for babies, toddlers, and pre-kindergarten children. Storytime programs are filled with fun songs, fingerplays, flannel board presentations, puppets and, of course, stories just right for the development of young minds in these age groups. Library staff are happy to help families find books to check out after storytime.

Escondido Public Library’s 2016 winter and spring storytime schedule begins January 4, 2016 and runs through April 28, 2016 and includes:

  • Rhymes and Reading on Mondays at 11:00 a.m. for children ages 3-5;
  • Baby Lapsit on Wednesdays at 10:15 a.m. for newborn babies to pre-walkers;
  • Toddler Tales on Thursdays at 10:15 a.m. for toddlers who are walking up to 3 years-old. Toddler Tales is a bilingual program.

Note: Storytime programs will not be offered March 23-24 or 30-31.

The Library’s storytime programs address the development of early literacy skills that are important in preparing children for school. Each storytime program is planned and presented around the idea that parents are their child’s first and most important teacher. Storytimes facilitate bonding between parents and young children and provide a positive experience with books and play that often leads to a life-long love of reading and learning.

Library programs are free, open to the public, and sponsored by Friends of the Escondido Public Library.
