Here at the Caryville library, we believe that early childhood development is very important. We want to see our little ones learn to love books and reading. Story Time can help your children, and you as a parent, do just that. Every week we pick a great story for them to enjoy and an activity after that is related to the story they just heard. We always have a craft or activity to go along with the story, and sometimes we have snacks! Whatever it is, your little ones are sure to have a great time!
Fridays at 2:30 PM. (Time may change for future dates)
