Story Time

Start your child on the road to reading!

Did you know that you can sign your child up for a free story time program at your local library?

Programs are available at the majority of public libraries throughout the province for children 3-5 years of age.

Story time follows a standard routine across the province in order to facilitate oral language and early literacy and promote good reading and research habits early.

Story time (30- 60 minutes) includes rhymes, stories, counting, singing, plays and puppets, dancing and social time. Story time is designed to provide children with the tools and skills essential to success.

Many libraries offer additional programs for children, including seasonal programs and special events.

Check the Event Calendar for details to see when your local library holds story time or contact your local library

A typical storytime hour at any library in the province runs an average of 30 minutes to an hour depending on special holiday storytime or if the library has included a craft for children.
