Help encourage children to enjoy reading by signing them up for a story time at the Nashville Public Library. The library offers two story times for children beginning in February and ending in April.
Lap sit programs for children, ages birth to three, begin Thursday, Feb. 5, at the library. The program will continue each Thursday from 6 – 6:30 p.m. through April 9. Children in this program must be accompanied by a parent, grandparent, or guardian.
Theme for the first program is “Baby, It’s Cold Outside.” Subsequent themes include: My Heart’s Aflutter, Penguin Dreams, Let’s Monkey Around, Just Like the Animals, The Luck of the Irish, Moms and Dads, Spotlight Author: Jamie Lee Curtis, Hippity-Hoppity: Easter’s On Its Way, and Here Be Dragons.
Story time for children, ages four to seven, begins Monday, Feb. 2, at the library. This story time continues each Monday evening from 6 – 6:30 p.m. through April 13. These story times consist of stories, songs, finger plays, and simple crafts.
The theme for the winter/spring season is “Welcome to the Nashville Zoo!” The first program centers around “Groundhogs.” Subsequent programs include Foxes, Bears, Elephants, Moose, Turtles, Alligators, Bugs, Birds, and the Zoo.
There is no charge for either story time, but pre-registration is required and must be done in person at the Nashville Public Library. A schedule of events will be given to the parent when the child is registered for a program.
