Storytimes at HPL

Each week, your child will get a handout with the books, songs and other activities we've enjoyed. Sing the songs and do the activities during the week with your child. Select books from the library to read at home.

Remember that reading to your child is the most important thing you can do to encourage a love of books and reading.

A Note on Age-Specific Groups
Because our storytimes are designed for specific age groups and contain content unique to their developmental needs, we ask that children remain in their age-appropriate storytime until they are old enough to advance to the next level.
