Colfax Library Storytime

Mark your event calendar each Thursday for a free, educational Storytime at the Colfax Library beginning September 13. Storytime at the Colfax branch is divided into three age groups: BABY TIME–ages 0-2 from 10:10-10:30 a.m.; TODDLER TIME-ages 2-3 from 10:30-11:00 a.m. and PRESCHOOL TIME-ages 4 and up from 11:00-11:30 a.m. Storytime offers a valuable listening and pre-reading experience for children of all ages. A variety of books and activities cater to infants, toddlers, preschoolers, and their families.

The focus this year is on the alphabet featuring letters and sounds. Each week a new letter is introduced with visual and phonemic activities, all planned to promote reading readiness in your child. Through stories, poetry and music, children acquire information as well as an appreciation for the written word and fine illustration.

Storytime allows each child time to share good stories and to express him or herself. Parents are encouraged to bring their children to Storytime. At Storytime, children participate in a variety of imaginative activities that include poetry, finger plays and action activities, games, musical events, crafts, puppets, and creative dramatics. These activities help promote cognitive development and reading readiness.
