- Children attending need to turn the appropriate age during the current storytime session. Siblings in other age groups are welcome in Baby, Toddler, and Junior sessions.
- If your child grows restless or upset, please give them a break from the storytime room to calm down.
- Help us keep distractions to a minimum by leaving toys at home and going to the bathroom or having a snack before storytime starts.
- You are a great example for your child. Participate to the best of your ability to encourage them to do so as well.
- Listening is a learned skill. We ask adults and children to wait until play time to chat, call, or text with others.
- If your child is sick, please stay home to prevent the spread of germs.
- Have fun!
Staff reserves the right to settle any issues regarding residency, age and the application of these rules.
Things to Keep in Mind
Please do not bring food or toys to storytime.
Enourage your child to participate in all activities so they can get the most out of storytime.
Please have your child use the bathroom and get a drink of water before storytime begins.
Please do not knock on the Story Room door. Instead, if you are late or take a break, please ask the desk staff to let you in.
