Children’s Story Times
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:
Tuesday September 14, 21, 28 –Giggles and Wiggles
Miss Carissa from DBA Dance will lead a forty five minute outdoor dance class. This program is for kids, ages 2 to 6. This program also helps children strengthen motor skills.
Thursdays beginning Sept 9 –Outdoor Autumn Storytime
Storytime lasts between 30 to 40 minutes (no one gets offended if your child doesn’t last this long!) and is for ages 2-6.
We will practice social distancing. This offering will be weather permitting.
Please bring a blanket or chairs. Masks are highly encouraged. If you choose not to wear a mask, please be respectful of keeping distance from others.
