It's that time of year again, time to sign-up for Storytime! Here is the schedule at this point:
2 years old: 10:00 on Monday or Thursday
4/5 years old: 10:00 or 1:00 on Fridays
3/4 years old: 1:00 on Monday or Thursday
12-23 months: 10:30 on Wednesday (in October only)
HOWEVER... a patron has requested an earlier time for 3 year olds to accommodate nap-time. In the past we've tried switching the 2s with the 3s one day a week but the 1:00 hour was even worse for napping two year olds and we had very limited enrollment. This year we are contemplating a new arrangement whereby we would have a session for 3/4 at 11:00 a.m. on either Monday or Thursday. My concern is that a.m. kindergarten ends at 11:20 and we wouldn't end storytime until 11:45 and would complicate things for some parents. I'd hate to put aside time for a storytime session and have no one show up. Our fearless leader, Nancy W., wouldn't be too happy either.
So, if you read this and have a 3 year old and would like a earlier storytime time let me know. And ask your friends. Until then, we'll keep our storytime schedule as is.
BTW, Ms. Eileen and I are working on an after-school storytime for "storytime alumnae" in grades 1-2.
