The Grafton Public Library provides a variety of storytime sessions. Attendance is drop-in unless otherwise noted. Promptness is appreciated. We expect the little ones to wiggle! Don’t feel you have to sit through the entirety of each session – it’s fine to excuse yourself and come back later or the following week. If school is cancelled, storytime is cancelled as well. If there is a half-day of school, morning storytimes are cancelled.
Research shows that the strongest predictor of school success is caregivers who read with their children at home. Don’t forget to browse for materials to take home before or after the program!
Unless noted, all Storytimes take place at the Grafton Public Library’s temporary location at 53 North Main Street in North Grafton.
