The Moorestown Library kicked off its fall story-time season last week, with free weekly programs for children from birth through kindergarten. If you haven’t signed up yet, don’t fret. While some sessions have filled, it’s not too late to join the fun.
Baby Story Time is being offered for children younger than 2 at 9:30 a.m. every Monday morning through Nov. 12. Baby Story Time is an interactive 30-minute program featuring nursery rhymes, songs, books and puppets that emphasize caregiver participation. At the end of each story time, caregivers and babies are invited to stay for an informal playtime. No registration is required—just drop in to join the fun.
The library is offering two sessions of Time for Twos this fall, at 10:45 a.m. on Mondays and 11 a.m. on Tuesdays. Time for Twos is a high energy, 30-minute program highlighting books, finger plays, action rhymes, puppets and song. It is designed for 2-year-olds and their caregivers to enjoy and participate in together. Registration is not required.
Story time will also be held for 3- and 4-year-olds and kindergarteners. Children enjoy books, rhymes, flannel board stories, short movies and crafts. These weekly programs last about one hour and require advance registration. If your child has never participated in story time at the Moorestown Library before, a birth certificate will be required to complete his or her registration.
Schedule for story times:
- 3-year-olds — 9:30 a.m. to 1:30 p.m., Wednesdays
- 4-year-olds — 9:30 a.m. to 1:30 p.m., Thursdays; 9:30 a.m., Fridays
- Kindergarteners — 9:30 a.m. and 1:30 p.m., Tuesdays
