One of FPL’s goals for 2017 is to create a robust offering of early literacy opportunities for our kids. A major program that we offer as a library is storytime and we are proud to offer sessions for all ages pre-K and under. Baby Storytime is a program for parents/caregivers and babies 0-18 months. We will continue to offer a toddler storytime for ages 2-5. For those children in preschool we will be offering their own storytime this summer along with our storytime in the park running from June the September. Please read on for descriptions.

This storytime is geared specifically towards babies 0-18 months. Parents, family members, and caregivers are invited to bring their young ones for an afternoon of songs, rhymes, and even a story! This is a great way to introduce literacy practices to your baby! Registration required and certain Mondays the program will not be offered check in advance to sign up.

Storytime In the Park

Fraser Public Library, in cooperation with Fraser Parks & Recreation, presents an outside storytime in the park! We will meet the pavilion near City Hall for a storytime for ages 5 and under. During times of inclement weather (pouring rain), storytime will meet in the meeting room of FPL. There will be no meeting on July 3rd.
PLEASE ARRIVE EARLY FOR ALL PROGRAMS-Children are easily distracted. Late arrivals quickly become the focus of everyone’s attention. Arrive early to visit the bathroom, chat and choose a great seat. Thank you.
