10:Fall for a Good Storytime at Santa Clarita Library

Posted on: 09/06/2018 00:00

This autumn, encourage your children to “fall” for a good storytime at your local Santa Clarita Public Library. All three Santa Clarita Public Library branches will be hosting free, family-friendly, interactive storytimes for various age groups from September 10 through November 15.

            Storytime is a great way for parents and caregivers to bond with their children while teaching early literacy skills and offering a safe opportunity for children to socialize with others their own age in the community. Your child will also listen, sing, dance and explore!
