Library and Storytime

When I was a kid I loved going to the library!  It is the perfect place to go on a rainy day and it costs nothing!  Along with just going to check out the books, there are many free programs offered by the library and with many branches around the city, there is one near you (its just a matter of whether or not it jives with naptime!).

Family Storytime – “Stories, songs, fingerplays, and rhymes for the whole family. Program will include stories for older children to share with their younger siblings.”

Man in the Moon – “A unique program for dads, uncles, step dads, foster dads, granddads, and all male caregivers.”  Note that although its free, registration is required for this program.

Toddler Storytime – “Rhymes, songs, fingerplays and simple stories for toddlers, their parents and caregivers.”

Babytime – “Rhymes, songs, bounces, fingerplays and stories for babies, their parents and caregivers.”

Pre-School Storytime – “Stories, songs, rhymes and fingerplays for preschool children, their parents and caregivers.”

Evening Family Storytime – “Stories, songs, fingerplays, and rhymes for the whole family. Program will include stories for older children to share with their younger siblings.”  This program usually takes place 630-7 so that working parents can take their children to storytime as well!

They also have family board game nights, lego parties and book clubs for older children.  Check out their calendar of free child friendly events.  The Vancouver Public Library Website
