Storytime at Home

According to the National Center for Education Statistics, children who are read to at home become better readers and earn higher math scores as they get older. To experience the benefits of early literacy, the NCES recommends that parents read to their child at least three to four times a week.

Struggling to get started with storytime at home? Ask a librarian for help! Our collection includes over 10,000 picture books and over 8,000 nonfiction titles for kids!
