Story Times

Winter Session: Jan 02 - Feb 24*

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.

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

*Schedule available online 21 days prior to start date. Dates may vary. Discover other children events available all year.
