Escondido, CA – Escondido Public Library offers storytime programs this winter and spring designed for babies, toddlers, and pre-kindergarten children. Storytime programs are filled with songs, fingerplays, flannel board presentations, puppets and, of course, stories just right for the development of young minds. Library staff are happy to help families find books to check out after programs.
Escondido Public Library’s 2018 Winter and Spring Storytime Schedule begins January 10, 2018 and runs through April 26, 2018 and includes:
- Rhymes and Reading on Mondays at 11:00 a.m. for children ages 3-5.
- Baby Lapsit on Wednesdays at 10:30 a.m. for newborn babies to pre-walkers.
- Toddler Tales, a bilingual program, on Thursdays at 10:30 a.m. for toddlers who are walking and up to 3 years-old.
- P.J Storytime, a once a month evening storytime on select Tuesdays at 6:00 p.m. for ages 4-12.
Escondido Public 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 leads to a life-long love of reading and learning.
Library programs are free, open to the public, and sponsored by the Friends of the Escondido Public Library.
