Story Times are a great way for young children to interact with others and take part in stories, songs and finger plays. It is also an important step in helping young children get ready to read.
During the busy holiday season, Story Times at the Fauquier County Public Library will go on a short break starting Monday, December 22, 2014. Story Times will resume Monday, January 5, 2015.
The American Academy of Pediatrics recommends reading aloud to infants from birth. So keep the Story Times going even during the break. Here are some fun and easy tools available at your library:
Story Time To Go
