Story time is returning to Mentor Public Library!
We have story times for kids from newborns on up and at all of our branches.
Find out which one if best for your child:
Our newest story time, Read With Me, is designed to teach you tips to promote early literacy at home.
It still has all the stories, songs, and activities that you’ve come to expect from us. But we also want to give you the tools that you need to help your child learn to love reading. We’ll even provide book recommendations and craft supplies that you can use at home.
Read With Me will be held each month at our Lake Branch. Our first meeting will be at 10:30 a.m. on Tuesday, Jan. 24. It’s open to all kids—newborn to three years old—and their caretakers. No registration necessary.
Tiddlywinks takes place at 10 a.m. each Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday at our Main Branch.
These story times are for children 36 months old and younger, accompanied by an adult.
It’s an interactive story time filled with stories, songs and rhymes just right for little listeners.
We also have our Snappy Little Story Time at 10 a.m. on Mondays at our Main Branch. It’s a combination of Tiddlywinks and Family Story Time. There will be songs, rhymes, books, and flannel stories all geared to the little listener. Please note there will be no craft. It’s open to kids from newborn to age 5.
Mother Goose on the Loose is for children 36 months old and younger, accompanied by an adult. It takes place at 10 a.m. on Friday in our Read House.
It uses rhymes, songs, puppets, musical instruments, and more to stimulate the learning process in babies and toddlers.
This is one of our few story times that requires registration. You can sign up by calling our Children’s Department at (440) 255-8811 ext. 221.
We also have Tike Time at 11 a.m. on Thursday at our Headlands Branch.
It’s for children from six months to four years old, along with a grownup. We have stories, songs, rhymes, and a very simple craft.
Then there’s Rhyme Time, our monthly story time at our Lake Branch. It’s for children from six months to five years old (with an adult), and we host it at 10:30 a.m. on the second Tuesday of each month.
We have stories, songs, and a craft—with a different theme each time.
Kids who graduate from Tiddlywinks will love our Preschool Story Time.
It takes place on Tuesdays and Wednesdays at 11 a.m. at our Main Branch. It’s for kids from three to five years old. Children are expected to sit in the class without a grownup.
We also have Family Story Times at 6:30 p.m. on Mondays and at 11 a.m. on Fridays at our Main Branch and 1:30 p.m. on Wednesday at our Headlands Branch.
It’s for kids of all ages (along with an adult.) There are stories, music, rhymes, and a craft.
In addition to our story times, we also have a bunch of special programs for kids (and adults too) at all of our branches.
You can check them out on our event calendar. All of them are free, though some require registration.
See you at the library!
