Youth Programs

 

Huntington Memorial Library offers a variety of programs for all ages that supports a love for lifelong reading and learning, as well as supports a child’s imagination.

We offer weekly storytimes to help children develop early literacy skills through stories, songs, action rhymes, and activities.

Early literacy (reading and writing) does not mean early reading instruction or teaching babies to read; it is the natural development of skills through the enjoyment of books, the importance of positive interactions between babies and parents, and the critical role of literacy-rich experiences.

Registration is required for all programs unless otherwise stated. Check out our Eventbrite page to register for our programs and our Youth Calendar for more information.
