Fall Story Time

It's that time of year again: the days are getting shorter and sweaters are kept nearby. It's fall, and that means the Clinton District Public Library Story Time is back! We are doing things a little differently this year as a way to give the babies and the big kids their own special space to enjoy everything the library has to offer. And it's a good thing we did, too: with over 13 children in the 2-4 year-old story time last week, we are literally running out of room at the Clinton Library.

So here is the new lineup:

Each Wednesday we will have two story time sessions for different age groups. We do ask that you call to register, as space in our little library is certainly limited. (304) 291-0703.

10:30am: Books and Babies. Children ages birth-2 can join us for this special lapsit. We sing songs, read short books, practice repetitive movement and word recognition and, most importantly, we do a lot of baby bonding. Did you know that research shows reading to children under the age of three can greatly increase language comprehension, encourage larger, more expressive vocabularies, and higher cognitive scores? Who knew having so much fun could be so important to baby's development.

11:30am: Story Time for Children Ages 2-4. At this more traditional story time we will read longer stories, sing some songs, do finger-plays, crafts and other fun theme-based activities. Both story times are a great chance for caretakers to get to know fellow parents and for children to interact with other kids in a fun, relaxed environment.

We look forward to having fun at story time with you!!
