StoryTime at the Provo City Library

I cannot say enough good things about Story time at the Provo City Library.  I have been going to StoryTime at the Provo City Library for 4 years.  When I was a new mom, I  started at Book Babies and have moved up to the next StoryTime as my child advanced to each new stage.   Now I watch my 4 year old go through the little door to StoryTime in the Children's Room, (look on the TV screen to make sure he has made it in safe), and  head over to the StoryTelling Circle for Mother Goose Toddler Time with my 2 year old, which starts just 5 minutes later.  When Toddler Time ends, we grab our coloring sheet and can be standing right outside the door, when my 4-year-old comes bounding out the little door.

StoryTimes are held daily with two time slots, just in case you miss the "early" one. It is available for every age and stage.  At age 3, children can attend a StoryTime session without their parents, but can be observed by their parents on a TV screen right outside the door.  The StoryTellers are great at entertaining children AND parents!

You can also check out book and movies at the Provo City Library for FREE!

TIPS:  Come early to get a good seat at StoryTime in the Storytelling Circle.  It gets filled up fast!  Don't be late for StoryTime in the Children's Room (3-5 year olds).  They really do lock the doors.  Also, be sure to stop off at the Children's Circulation Desk to get a name tag for your 3-5 year old.  There are usually no storytimes in May and August, with some summer story time hours during June and July.  Check the website for changing schedules for the summer.
