Story Hour at PMPL

The Story hour program consists of stories, songs, games, fingerplay and crafts.

We also ask that you be on time for our kids programs as a courtesy to everyone.

Policies for Story Hour

1. Our goal for story hour programs is for children to have a good time and develop early literacy skills. With your help, we can develop and nurture your child's love of books and interest in the library.

2. Story hour is a time for adults and children to participate in planned activities. If you want to chat with a friend or read a magazine, please do so outstide the story hour room. We don't want our kids to be distracted while they are listening and learning.

3. If you child is ready to sit and listen without your help in the story room, you can sit in the library away from your child. But we appreciate that you remain in the library.

With your help, we can make story time a wonderful regular event in your child's life. Please ask us if you have any questions.
