Story Time

Miss Theresa and Miss Lauren welcome you to Story Time where children laugh, learn, share, and discover library materials! Each session features books, music and movement, and imaginative play to create a truly interactive experience for all. Our sessions are designed to support early literacy skills, which are the building blocks to reading…and so much more!

Registration is required and is limited to one session per week, per child. Parents and guardians must stay at the library with their children. Children must be the appropriate age for the start of the program but please contact Miss Theresa at the Children’s Services desk, 973-728-2823 or by email, if you have any questions or concerns.

To register, click on the program you would like to attend.

See you at Story Time!

Lap Tots

Ages: Babies – 24 mos.         Thursday: 11:30 a.m. 
Songs, rhymes, puppets, and simple stories are the stars of these light-hearted storytimes! Miss Lauren welcomes all infants and toddlers up to 24 mos! This is an excellent way to introduce your little ones to the sights and sounds of their world, and to meet other babies too! Free-play normally concludes our program, but will not be included in our Fall 2021 session.

Toddler Time

Ages: 2 & 3         Tuesday: 10:15 a.m.  or  Thursday: 10:15 a.m. 
Miss Lauren leads the way with songs, stories, puppets, rhymes and finger plays during energetic storytimes designed especially for our twos and threes! A craft activity concludes our program.

Preschool Stories

Ages: 4 & 5        Thursday: 1:45 p.m. 
Miss Theresa introduces longer stories to the preschool child who is becoming more independent but still enjoys finger plays, songs and poems. In addition to tons of fun, these storytimes are full of kindergarten preparation skills! A craft activity concludes our program.

This program will meet in the children’s craft room. Parents will be able to observe from the activity area but our big kids will independently attend our storytime!
