The return of storytime @ Perry Library!

Summer reading is over!

The school kids are back to their lessons!

Perry Public Library is revving back up for another great year of fantastic storytimes!

Pinky dinky dooJust like always, Ms. Yolanda has lots of fun planned for families. Her storytimes are always full of literacy building fun such as: songs, stories and age appropriate activities. These things remain the same.

So what might be a bit different? Well, one of the items we’re most excited about is the addition of the Lapsit Lounge. Last year, our Lapsit families expressed an interest in more social time. This year following our Lapsit storytime, we are inviting parents and children to enjoy some social time in the storytime space.  This time will give children, and parents, more opportunity outside of the storytime to make friends and enjoy one another. We hope you are as excited about it as we are!

There has also been some shifting of times and age groups. Please take a moment to locate your age group.


10:15   Toddlers (ages 2 – 3 years)

11:15   Lapsit (ages 12 – 24 months)
11:45 – 12:30   Lapsit Lounge

4th Tuesday of each month: 6:00 Teen Programs

Those between 13 – 17 are invited to join us for an evening of fun and games.
Please RSVP to reserve your spot.


10:15   PreK (ages 4 – 5 years)

11:15   Homeschool Activity each week will alternate between:
Homeschool Primary Word Play (ages 5 – 8)
Homeschool Teens & Tweens (ages 9 – 17)

The modification to the Homeschool activity schedule is another item that we are excited about. Homeschool parents have expressed an interest in developing more age specific activities. Our young patrons still fully developing their literacy skills were anxious to begin homeschool activities of their own. And all homeschool families have often stated how difficult it is to always commit to ANOTHER weekly activity on top of all else that they do. We are happy to answer these concerns. Ms. Yolanda has developed an alternating homeschool schedule.  Our 5 – 8 year olds will meet for fun word play to support their developing literacy skills. Our 9 – 17 year olds will continue in their activities to support honing of writing and research skills. Just like last year, your family knows that Perry Library will be full of homeschool families on Thursdays at 11:15. Whether its social time or an organized library activity, Thursdays at 11:15 is the place & time for homeschoolers!

We are looking forward to another great year of literacy building and fun!
Thank you for your continual input and participation.
