Our goal is to provide families with opportunities to introduce children to reading and language in a fun and interactive manner. Storytime attendance helps improve and reinforce early literacy skills.

Family Storytime typically lasts about 45 minutes and includes stories, flannel boards, fingerplays, rhymes, movement, songs and a related craft or activity. Ages 0-Kindergarten welcome.

Please contact Caroline Shoenthal, cshoenthal@powhatanlibrary.net with questions regarding children’s programs.
