Storytimes

Storytimes are a great way to bond with your child while introducing them to crucial learning concepts such as phonological awareness, rhyme, letter recognition and most of all…Reading as a fun and engaging activity!

It is never too early to start,
“By the age of 2, children who are read to regularly display greater language comprehension, larger vocabularies, and higher cognitive skills than their peers.” Raikes, et al. Child Development, 2016.

Movers and Shakers:
Wednesdays 10:30-11:00 am
(best for children 2 and younger)
In this Storytime, we explore the six foundations of Early Literacy; Read, Write, Sing, Talk and Play, using books, songs and rhymes. Bubbles, toys, and puppets are given after the stories are read to provide fun and enriching opportunities for you and your child to bond and learn together.

Read, Play, Grow:
Thursdays 10:30-11:15 a.m.
(best for children 2 1/2 and older)
In Read, Play, Grow, we use stories, songs and activities to enhance your child’s ability to recognize, comprehend, and follow words, sentences and story-lines. Attending this Storytime before your child enters kindergarten ensures that your child has the Early Literacy skills they need to succeed. A craft is introduced each week to help develop fine and gross motor skills, and to enhance artistic expression.

Scientists Series at Nederland Public Library @ Nederland Public Library

Local Scientists Caring for Our Earth Series
Tuesday evenings at 7 p.m.
In partnership with the local non-profit Our Sacred Earth, the Nederland Community Library will be hosting a local scientists series this fall. Part science talks, part personal experiences, the series will explore:
How the scientists got involved in their work–what motivates them?
How their work touches our lives.
How they address the issue of climate disruption in their work and their lives.
The topics will explore different aspects of climate change and will include local scientists from places like CU Boulder and the National Center for Atmospheric Research.
