Every week, Livingston Parish Library offers storytimes for preschool children. Storytimes help foster early literacy skills needed for children to be school-ready. Our storytimes for babies, toddlers, and preschoolers focus on developing early literacy skills—those skills necessary in order to begin to learn to read. We have designed our storytimes to reach and teach a multi-age audience from babies to 5-year-olds.

Storytimes feature stories read aloud and can include songs, finger plays, puppets, and crafts among other activities. Pick your most convenient library branch and come join the fun!
