These sessions are part of the Every Child Ready to Read @ Your Library initiative, which promotes the improvement of important literacy skills through activities like talking, singing, reading, writing, and playing. Each Storytime session will last between 30 minutes and 1 hour and will feature a story, singing, arts and crafts, and some simple activities designed to give children the opportunities they need to be ready to read.
