About Preschooler Programs


The Grimsby Public Library provides story time programs to our younger patrons as a way to foster early literacy & language learning skills. Here is what you need to know:

There are 3 separate sessions: Fall, Winter, and Spring 

     2. Sessions run from September - November, January - March, and March - May.

     3. This schedule mimics the school year and prepares your child for the future.

     4. There are four programs for four different age groups: Baby Time (Ages 0 - 11
         months), Tales & Tunes (Age 1), Toddler Time (Age 2), and Story Time (Ages 3+)

     5. Each program features age appropriate stories, songs, rhymes, activities, and crafts
         that are tailored to develop different literacy & language skills.

     6. Children must sign up with their age bracket only. 

     7. You can pay for your program at the Grimsby Public Library in-person. Cash or debit
         will be accepted.

 There's lots to do at the Libray and just as much fun on the Library's website. We've got lots of great online tools and have collected them in one spot...  just for kids.  You'll need your GPL card number to access some of these great online tools, and some anyone can use. There's lots of info for parents too.
