Storytime is back a the Nelson library later this month.

Storytimes back at the Nelson library

Join the staff at the Nelson Public Library, where they play with pirates, cavort with dragons

The word is out: storytimes are fun.

Join the staff at the Nelson Public Library, where they play with pirates, cavort with dragons, frolic with fairies, and enjoy books, music, felt boards, fingerplays, and more.

Stories for Growing is a preschool storytime for three-to-five year olds that runs Wednesdays at 10:15 a.m. beginning Wednesday, September 19.

Tales for Twos is especially for two and three year olds, beginning Saturday, September 22 at 10:15 a.m. Tales for Twos is a parent participation storytime. Preregistration is required, and is now open. Visit the library, call 250-352-6333, or email to register.

Reading stories and playing word games with children is the first step in literacy and love of reading that will follow a child through a lifetime. Storytimes have been running at the library for more than half a century. By bringing your kids to storytimes, you’re not only part of a long tradition — you’re part of the future.
