The Fargo Public Library has several storytime sessions available for families to spend quality time sharing stories, learning school readiness skills, and preparing children for a lifetime of reading. Through the use of age-appropriate stories, songs, and fingerplays in a group setting, staff help parents and caregivers learn how to foster early literacy skills that prepare their children to learn to read.
Registration-only storytimes for toddlers and preschoolers are held in multiple-week sessions during the fall and winter.
Registration for the Winter 2019 Storytime session (Jan. 7 - Apr. 10) begins Dec. 1, 2018.
There are three ways to register:
Family Storytime is open to children ages 18 months to 6 years. Family Storytimes are generally 30 minutes in length.
Be sure to pick up a Storytime Punch Card. Children who attend 10 storytimes earn a free book!
Basic Storytime Guidelines:
Please note that all storytimes start promptly on schedule. Be sure to allow extra time for parking and getting nametags.
Please honor age limits for each storytime.
Please refrain from bringing food and beverage into storytime.
If children in your care become disruptive, please remove them until they are comfortable and ready to listen.
