Summer Storytimes

It’s summertime—the perfect time to visit the Children’s Room at the Amherst Town Library.  During these warm, lazy months there’s nothing like reading a great book, or listening to a wonderful story.
We offer  “Family Storytimes ” where everyone is welcome to attend, we travel to Baboosic Lake to read stories there, and we offer the “Baby Listeners” lapsit program for our youngest patrons and their caregivers.
All of these programs are drop-in---we love to see you whenever you are able to attend!


Stories at Joshua's Park with Miss Sarah:

Grab a snack, and come on down to the park!  Miss Sarah will be sharing some of her favorite books, we'll sing a song or two, and we'll have some fun.
We'll start early, to take advantage of the morning coolness--make Joshua's Park your Monday  morning stop! 
Offered every Monday morning at 9:30am from June 26 to August 7, weather permitting.

Family Storytime with Miss Sadie:

Bring the whole family to the library to spend some quality story time with Miss Sadie.  She will be sharing a variety of her favorite books aimed at the 3-6 age group, but younger and older siblings are welcome, too. When you come to storytime, make sure to stop in and make a craft at the Make-it/Take-it table, get your reading log checked, and grab some great books to take home!
Offered every Wednesday morning at 10:00am from June 28 to Aug. 9


Stories at Baboosic:

Bring lunch to the picnic area at Baboosic and listen for Miss Sue’s bell—she’ll be there to read stories while you eat your meal!
Offered every Thursday at noon from June 22 to August 10, weather permitting.


Baby Listeners:

Our “baby” group offers an opportunity for babies and their caregivers to gather for rhymes, songs and puppets. Emphasis is on traditional rhymes that reinforce language patterns and provide for parent/child interaction. A simple book or two intended for this age is generally highlighted.

When parents register their little ones for our Summer Reading Program, they may enter our Parent Appreciation Raffle and get a chance to win a gift certificate to one of several local eateries. Each child receives a summer “listening log” where a special sticker is affixed each time you attend a  Baby Listeners group.

Offered every Friday morning at 10:30am from June 23 to Aug. 11
