Programs & Events for Preschoolers

early lit programs LOGO

The Grimsby Public Library provides Story Time Programs to our younger patrons as a way to foster early literacy & language learning skills. There are 3 separate sessions (or semesters) that run 9 months out of the year from September to May. This schedule is meant to mimic a regular school year and prepare your child for the future. We have 4 different programs that run within this timeframe that include different age groups. As of now, each of these programs has a different cost attached to them (see below). You may pay using cash or debit at registration.

Registration for the next session begins: Monday, March 6
Classes for the Winter Session begin the week of March 27 and continue until the week of May 15

Get a head start, and print out the  pdf Registration Form
. You can fill it out at home and bring it with you to the Library for quicker and easier sign up.

 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.
