The library is a great place for little ones to begin or enhance their educational journey through our Storytime programs. Story Play will help to build upon and to incorporate social and emotional components to our Storytimes.

Our newest program encourages you to bring your child to the library for a play-date! There will be books, toys, music and games to play and interact with. Caregivers can have the chance to meet and talk with one another. Story Play will take place on Monday’s, Wednesday’s, and Friday’s after Storytime beginning November 7th from 11:30-12:30 in our Storytime Room.
Many studies show that young children actively explore their environment and the world around them through learning-based play. Play is a vital part of a child’s optimal social, cognitive, physical and emotional development. Researchers agree that play provides a strong foundation for intellectual growth, creativity, problem-solving and basic academic knowledge. ICPL hopes that through Story Play young ones will grow in their learning skills through play with others.
Please feel free to bring lunch or snacks for you and your little one! No registration required. For ages 0-5 with a caregiver who must be present the entire time their child is at the library.
