Storytimes

Mead offers a variety of storytimes designed to teach the skills children must learn before they can read, while also encouraging a love of reading. Storytimes are also a good way to share books, learn new things and become comfortable in a group setting.

Different storytimes focus on different age groups, but all sessions include activities that incorporate the five practices of early literacy: talking, singing, reading, writing and playing.  

  • Baby & Me Storytime for babies and toddlers (and caregivers) ages 6-23 months. Features simple books, lap bounces, songs, rhymes, fingerplays, socialization and free play.
  • Little Listeners for children 2-up. Features books, fingerplays, music and activities.
  • Preschool Storytime for children ages 3-5. Features books, rhymes, music, movement, crafts and short films. Younger siblings welcome
  • Family Storytime for kids of all ages  families. Features books, music and activities.
