Storytimes return to the Truckee Library

TRUCKEE and#8212; With this tidal wave of research emphasizing the importance of reading to your child from birth, the library is pleased to offer programming for Truckeeand#8217;s tiniest residents, from 6 to 24 months of age. The program focuses on the all-important concepts of rhythm, repetition and rhyme. Since it is nearly impossible to expect the very young to focus exclusively on one storyteller in a group setting for an extended period of time, the library provides individual sets of materials for each infant/caregiver pair. Eye-catching big books are featured each week, along with a core set of board books selected for their universal appeal to the very young. Accompanying music, maracas and bubbles round out this multi-sensory experience offered Wednesdays at 10:30 am

Once your child reaches that adorable toddling stage, Toddler Time for 18 to 36 month olds takes center stage on Tuesdays at 10:30 a.m. Attention spans lengthen somewhat and powers of exploration explode. Toddler Time is not for the faint of heart; itand#8217;s a sometimes wild, always wacky time of sharing short books in a group, singing, dancing, maracas, bubbles, hand stamps and stickers.

For that magical preschool age of 3-5, when attention span lengthens and activity level starts to lessen somewhat, thereand#8217;s Storytelling with Mrs. Fix every Thursday at 11:15 a.m. The incomparable Diane Fix draws upon her many years of experience as Director of the Church of the Mountains Preschool. Each week she features a special theme utilizing her vast personal and professional library of materials. Pick up a schedule of themes at the library.

Our newest storytime is Pajama Time! On the first Thursday of each month at 6 p.m., children are encouraged wear their pajamas and fuzzy slippers, bring their favorite stuffed animal or blanket and get ready for bed with stories and songs at the library. All ages are welcome, but the program is geared toward 2 to 6-year olds. Mark your fall calendars for Oct. 7, Nov. 4 and Dec. 2. The wearing of pajamas is not required, just encouraged.

Each of the storytimes roughly adheres to the school year schedule, taking breaks in the summer and major holiday periods. Call 582-7846 for details.-
