The Nelson Storytime staff are off to another great year of programs for children at the Nelson Public Library.

Songs, rhymes and feltboard stories of silly monkeys, rambunctious sheep or trickster spiders are just some of the tales to be told during preschool storytime.

This program started on Wednesday January 18 and is for three to five year olds. Have a younger child? Tales for Twos is a program designed for two to three year olds with  parent/caregiver participation. Start date is this Saturday.

Tales for Twos focuses on songs, dance and a book or two. Each program starts at 10:15 a.m. and lasts approximately 30 minutes or longer depending on how much fun we are all having.

Both storytimes support early literacy by building vocabulary and sharing age-appropriate literature in a fun and engaging atmosphere. Pre-registration is required and programs fill up fast.

Have a younger child still? Book Babies will resume in the Spring. Book Babies is for newborns to prewalkers.

Don’t delay call today to sign up for any of these sessions.

Need more info email or call Nancy or Megan @ 352-8283 or 352-6333.
