Storytime at James River Valley Library System is deigned for toddlers, and preschoolers, or any child who still enjoys hearing stories, singing songs, and using their imaginations! Stories, puppets, songs, action rhymes, and child/parent participation are some of the fun activities included during storytime. No registration is needed for individual families. Please, no large groups, as space is limited. Storytime will run for approximately 30 minutes, but may run longer or shorter depending on the activities. Check out our events calendar here, to find out when the next Storytime event is scheduled.
