Family Storytime returns to the Arlington Public Library

Family story time takes place 11:30 a.m., Saturday, Jan. 15, 2022 at the George W. Hawkes Downtown Library’s Children Room.  Storytime is both a thoughtful and fun way to encourage children’s love of books. It will also set them into motion as future budding readers. This program is developmentally appropriate for ages 2-4. To help all the children get the most out of their experience, staff members encourage you to listen, sing, and wiggle along with your little ones as they learn listening skills, make connections and grow their Social and Emotional Maturity. Different story times do occur throughout the week at the city’s various library locations. You can head over the Library’s website to learn more.
