Weekly Story Time for Preschool Children

Story Time is on Fridays at 10 AM

**PLEASE NOTE:  In the event of inclement weather, if Berlin Central School District is closed or has a delay, then Story Time is cancelled.**

Calling all preschoolers (and their caregivers)!   Join us each Friday for some story time fun! In this half-hour session, we read aloud, sing songs, move about, and explore the world around us through literature. Parents and children are encouraged to stay after story time so children have time for free play while grown-ups browse for books and socialize.  Story Time is led by Kim Roppolo and Marilyn Siverson.

Registration is encouraged but not required. For more information, stop by the Library or call us at 733-5750.
