The stories, games, finger plays, and activities used in story time are designed to foster a love of language and books, introduce standard works of literature for young children, provide your child with an early group experience, encourage an increased attention span, demonstrate new activities for you to enjoy with your child at home and provide a pleasant introductory experience to the library.

Read With a Librarian

Read With a Librarian

Toddlers/preschool - 9 years old

Wednesday 9am-12pm via Ring Central video call

Sign up to have a librarian read with your child on Wednesdays. Depending on your child's age and reading ability your child might want to only be read to OR they may read to us! Either way this a great opportunity to gain reading confidence and encourage a love for reading!

Once you register we will be in touch with you by Tuesday evening to schedule a time that works best for your schedule between 9am-12pm. You may also select books on hoopla for practicing readers so that a librarian may follow along (that is optional).

We are looking forward to reading together with your child!

If Dover schools are cancelled due to inclement weather, story times will be cancelled (even if the library is open).
