Story Time

I caught this picture of my boys reading library books when they were 10 months and 3 1/2. They love going to the library and reading!

As I was sitting in the Lehi Library watching my two boys listen intently to a story we have at our house, (but for some reason it is better when they hear it at story time) I thought about all those people who don’t take advantage of story time. Most libraries offer story time for free, and it is such a great way to help your child develop a love for reading. Our library also does songs and movement activities which I love because it is hard for 2-4 year olds to sit still for 30 minutes. If you are not currently attending a story time at your library, I highly recommend it. I did a little bit of research on the some of the local libraries here in Utah County, but if you live somewhere else just look up your library online or give them a call.

Story Times
Lehi Library: W or TH 9:30, 10:30, 11:30 (you need tickets and must have a Lehi library card). They also have free craft times on Monday!

Provo Library: This library has different times for all ages (0-12 mo., 1-2, and 3-5). Check their website.

Orem Library: TWTH at 10:30, or Lap Time for the younger crowd at 10:00 AM.

Saratoga Springs: Residents only…and I couldn’t find info on their website. Check the library.

Eagle Mountain: T/Th at 10:30 am.

Highland: This library has a bunch of different story times, even one for the family in the evening. Check their website for times (you must register for certain times).

Pleasant Grove: TWTH @ 10:00, 11:00 ,or 1:00 –you have to register with a current library card to attend at Pleasant Grove, but it is still free. They also have a Wee Read for 18 mo.–3 years.

Mapleton: T @ 10:30 in the basement of the City Center.
Springville: T @ 10:30 or F @ 11:30 for 3–5. They also have a music and movement class and a baby lap time.

Payson: Th @ 10:30. They also have Preschool Pals and Tot Tales on T & W.

Spanish Fork: M & T @ 10:30 is Mother Goose time and T @ 1:00 and W @ 11:00 is Preschool Pals for ages 3 and older. There are lots of programs–check their site.

Santaquin: I couldn’t see info on story time other than they listed who the story time lady’s name, so ask at the library.

American Fork: This library charges for their story times because they do a craft each week. I have heard they are really fun and amazing, but I have a hard time handing over the $10 for non-residents. If you live in AF it is only $5.

Our story time ladies are the best. They bring in all sorts of fun props to make the stories come to life!

    Love your blog, I’m a new follower. I live in Saratoga Springs and just wanted to let you know your link for our library goes to the New York Saratoga library.

    Yeah, we used to go to AF until they raised their prices. They were amazing! The best of all the ones in the valley, in my opinion. But 10 bucks is a little steep so we don’t go there anymore. LOVED them!
