School and Daycare Visits

If you’re interested in a visit to the Library, or having a librarian visit your school, please contact our children’s librarian with the date you are interested in, age of children, group size and any particular topic or theme you may be studying. Please contact our children’s librarian at [email protected] or by phone at 610-358-3445.

Storytime at the Library

Check our Programs page for the most up-to-date information on upcoming storytimes. Age ranges for storytimes are suggestions and are not adhered to strictly. The stories and songs presented in each storytime have been chosen based on these ages; however, each child is different and the parent can determine where their child is developmentally. On the border between Infant and Toddler? Try one of each and see which fits best for your child!

Storytime Tips

  1. Please arrive early to allow time to get settled, go to the bathroom, etc. Storytimes for younger ones are only 20 minutes long, so all our time together is valuable.
  2. Participate with your child! Children learn from watching. Feel free to sing and read along. Storytime is a chance to interact with books and the experience will be so much richer if you help your child participate.
  3. Minimize distractions. Please turn off all cell phones and tablets, and save toys and snacks for after the program. Visiting with other parents is best saved for after storytime as well.
  4. Keep reading! Check out new books each week. Asking questions and extending themes helps reinforce new information in your child’s mind. Kids love to tell you what they learned or what they remembered from storytime!
