Lib Loop: Story Time a vital component of early literacy

Anne Greenwood
Special to the Sun

It has been proven time and time again that early literacy will give your little one a boost in all aspects of learning.

Story time has been a longtime staple in library programing; in fact, I remember as a little girl being so excited going to story time with my mother at our local library. Not only is story time a huge promoter of early literacy and building reading skills, it also builds children's confidence, and social skills.

Each one of your North Lake Tahoe libraries offers story times. There are several different types of stories times, from Toddler Time to Bilingual Story Time, and you are bound to find one that fits your family's needs.

I encourage you to make story time a staple in your children's lives. It's a beautiful time of bonding and having fun with your child.

If you are interested in specific story times at your local branch you can call Kings Beach Library at (530) 546-2021. Truckee Library at (530) 582-7846. Incline Village Library at (775) 832-4130. See you at Story Time!
