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.
Plant the love of reading early! Have fun with your baby up to 23 months and learn activities you can do at home. These are usually held on Tuesdays at 6:30pm.
A story time for toddlers, ages 2 & 3, with their parents and caregivers. Toddlers may attend in their pajamas. These are usually held on Tuesdays at 6:30pm.
Stories, rhymes, crafts and more for families with young children. Held at 1:00pm each Saturday, they may also include:
Tap & Tell: Story Time with iPad Fun! where kids and parents will be able to help design their own stories using apps and tablets.
Tell-a-Tail where kids can practice reading to our real, live, friendly therapy dogs.
