I would like to take my daughter to storytime, but she is only 2 years old. Do you have storytimes for 2 year olds at the library?

The library offers special storytime programs for young children, including those who are newborn to age 2. These storytimes are typically called My First Storytime and they are held at many of our 25 locations. During the 0-2 year old storytimes, children and parents can enjoy developmentally appropriate songs, finger plays, and stories in a fun and nurturing setting. To find a storytime at a location near you, consult the Kids page, which is found under the Interests tab.
