Children's Storytime

The Fargo Public Library has several storytimes available for families and caregivers where staff share their love of books and reinforce early literacy skills. Through the use of age-appropriate stories, songs, and fingerplays in a group setting, staff also help parents and caregivers learn how to foster early literacy skills to prepare their children for learning to read.

Storytimes for toddlers and preschoolers are held in multiple-week sessions during the fall and winter.

Registration for the Fall 2019 Storytime session (September 9 through December 11) begins August 1.

Baby Rhyme Time lapsit storytimes are held twice a month for babies from birth to 18 months.
