Storytime is a fun-filled preschool programme tailored specifically for babies, toddlers and preschoolers. The programmes feature stories, songs, movement and interactive fun which foster childrens' literacy. Caregivers can bond with their children as they enhance their social, cognitive, motor and musical skills. Storytime is held weekly during school terms at all libraries.
