Story Time

About

Story Time develops important pre-literacy skills including vocabulary, print awareness, narrative skills, print motivation, phonological awareness, and letter knowledge. Our programs combine these tools with the Five Simple Practices recommended by the Every Child Ready to Read Organization: talking, reading, singing, writing, and playing. 

Due to the Coronavirus, all of our story times will be virtual and held live over Zoom. Registration with an email is required to obtain the zoom link for that session. We ask that you only register each child for one story time per week 

Our Fall Story Time Session runs from September 14th to December 3rd

FAQs 

What will I need at home to attend virtual storytimes?
You will need internet connection and a device that can run Zoom. Click here for more information on joining Zoom meetings. 

How will I get my Zoom link?
You will receive it twice – first in the confirmation email after you register, and again in a reminder email. One Zoom invitation will work for all 12 weeks of Storytime. If you need assistance, please call us at 330-853-6658 or email mail.child@hudson.lib.oh.us. 

What can I expect from the virtual Storytime?
Our Storytimes will be presented live by our outstanding librarians. They include books, songs and rhymes, and last 20-30 minutes. 

Does my child have to be on camera? Do I?
All of our Storytimes require a care-giver’s participation, but you do not have to have your camera on. 

Will the Storytimes be recorded in case I miss one?
We will not be recording Zoom Storytimes.

Can I log in late to the Zoom meeting or leave early?
Technically, you can log in late, but we strongly suggest arriving 5 minutes early. Our Storytimes are carefully designed to provide your child with continuity and structure. If you need to leave early, simply click the “leave” button, and we will hope to see you the next time!
