ROCHESTER — The Rochester Public Library invites residents with young children to sign up for its upcoming session of Spring Story Times. 

Story Times meet weekly, allowing small groups of children from 1 year old to kindergarten to enjoy readings and activities facilitated by library staff. Registration for the spring session begins at 9 a.m. on Feb. 21 and can be completed by going to the library or calling 603-335-7549. 

“We want this to be a really child and family friendly space,” Children’s Room Librarian Marie Kelly said. “In terms of our programming, we put a big emphasis on making it fun and appealing to kids rather than strictly educational. It’s also a great way for kids and parents to enjoy time together and socialize.”

Each sessions runs for six weeks. The schedule, beginning March 12, is as follows:

Toddler Time — Thursdays at 9:15 a.m. 

Toddlers between 12 and 24 months and their parent or caregiver meet with a librarian for 20 minutes of stories, songs and finger plays. Parents are invited to stay for coffee/tea in the Story Time Room after the program. Toys will be available for the toddlers to play with while adults get a chance to socialize. Unfortunately, siblings are not permitted to join.
