Harwinton Public Library offers monthly programs for children, as well as four seasonal storytime sessions in Autumn, Winter, Spring and Summer. Each sessions runs for a period of eight weeks, and start dates are available on our calendar.

HPL’s storytimes are based on Connecticut’s Early Learning and Development Standards. They consist of a mix of stories, songs, sensory activities, and a craft.

Registration is encouraged, with the exception of the Summer Storytime session, which is a drop in program.

During a storytime session, the schedule is as follows:
