Story Times at the Flint Public Library are designed to entertain children and educate parents. We teach the five main skills of early literacy: Talking, Singing, Reading, Writing and Playing in each of our story times.
Librarians who lead our Story Times demonstrate ways to incorporate reading, books and learning fun in the everyday life of each child. Using these techniques makes it easy for parents to foster their child’s brain development and readiness for school.
We have three different story times throughout the year. Dates, times and which story time is offered may vary, so check our calendar for the latest information.
Saturdays at 1:00pm, beginning Sept. 12
We’re excited to announce that we’re bringing story time back for our youngest patrons. Starting Saturday, Sept. 12, you will be able to tune in via the Internet to hear/see a story being read aloud. Some Saturdays we will also have a craft. You can stop in the Library the week before to pick up a craft bag, or create your own from the supplies list we will provide. Our calendar is the best way for you to keep in touch about what stories are being read on which days.
