Preschool storytimes are held online every Thursday, beginning at 10:00 a.m. Storytimes are posted on the Lied Scottsbluff Public Library Facebook page and on the library’s Storytime Website. Those unable to view storytime Thursday morning may watch anytime afterward. Individual giveaway packets containing items and resources to promote and support the weekly theme are available for pick-up at the circulation desk from Thursday mornings at 9:00 a.m. through Saturdays at 5:00 p.m.
Storytimes are geared primarily to children between the ages of 2 and 6 years of age.
However, because the rate of growth and development varies greatly, we encourage parents to determine their child’s readiness for storytime. Different topics are featured each week and explored through the use of stories, songs, puppetry, flannelgraphs, fingerplays, games, and more.
We encourage parents to help their children select and check out library books to enhance their library experience and begin building a foundation for future learning. Theme-related surprises are given to each child who checks out books.
Until we can safely hold storytime in the library meeting room again, it is our hope that this virtual platform will provide a temporary educational (and FUN!) alternative.
