Nelson Public Library storytimes have started, and small folk have begun flocking to the library for songs, stories, fingerplays and fun.

Preschool storytime is for children three to five years old and runs Wednesdays from 10:15 to 11 a.m. until Nov. 18 (there is no storytime Nov. 11). Family storytime is an all-ages program that runs Saturdays from 10:15 to 10:45 a.m. until Nov. 28.

Children’s services librarian Nancy Radonich has seen a lot of children who came to storytimes become lifelong readers.

“It’s so important for small children to play with stories, poems, songs, rhymes, and rhythms in developing literacy,” she says. “It’s also just plain fun for kids and their adults to get together.”

There is room in both storytime sessions. To register for this free program go to or call 250-352-8283.
