StoryTime Registration

Instill the love of the public library in your child by attending children's storytime!

Tonight is the first Whale of a Tale storytime - a free drop in program for toddlers and preschoolers on  Monday evenings in the library auditorium. Bring your child (even in their pjs!) to the the library from 6:30-7:15 for stories, songs, finger play and crafts. 

Wednesday January 11th is also the beginning of registration for our free winter storytimes.  Storytimes are for children 9 months up to 5 years of age.  Check the link above for details on the three different programs we offer. To register call 519-271-0220 after 10am on the 11th. These programs are free thanks to the Friends of the Stratford Public Library. 
Stay tuned for SPL's Family Literacy Day events later in January.

If you can't make it to our programs, there are many other ways to help your child love to read: 

  • bring your child to the library
  • read to them regularly - even babies (and make it fun! use funny expressions and voices).
  • model reading - let your kids see your kids see you read - even if it is the newspaper
  • read books with the child's name in it - works especially for reluctant readers
  • give books as gifts
  • bring books wherever you go - doctors offices, restaurants, in the car
  • try audiobooks - or books / cd kits - perfect for road trips
