Story Times

Listening to stories and participating in fingerplays, songs, crafts, and dramatic responses can broaden a child's experience and stimulate creative thought. It offers an opportunity to develop socialization, language, and listening skills, and builds the foundations for reading.

The Palm Beach County Library offers a variety of story times and special events for children. Please call the location near you for more information.

The winter session will run from Jan 03 to Feb 25, unless otherwise stated.

Preregistration is required for all story times (except drop-ins).
