Story Times

It’s fun! It’s educational! It’s Story Time! 

Story TimeJoin us for lively sixty-minute programs held several times each week. Led by our talented librarians, children will hear stories, sing songs, and learn fingerplays. Story times can help encourage brain development, increase vocabulary, and improve motor skills. At the same time, children, parents, and caregivers will be entertained by the combination of stories and activities, often centered on a theme. 

All of our story times are free, suitable for the entire family, and require no advance registration. If you are bringing a large group of children, please call ahead at (510) 620-6557.
