Storytime Spotlight! Hoover Public Library.

featured, to do — By on August 30, 2012 at 8:35 am

Once summer reading winds down and school starts back there is always a small lull in the storytimes that are offered by the local libraries around Birmingham.

We tend to wander aimlessly during that time, as storytime is kind of a staple in our weekly routine. But have no fear! Many programs will be starting back up after the Labor Day Holiday. Yay!

Over the next couple of weeks we’re going to highlight a few of those for you. First up, Hoover Public Library. HPL is known for some of the best storytimes in town. Always well attended and they have a great variety for all ages. Choose the right one for you and your little one.

As you can see, there really is something for every age! In order to help make your storytime experience the best, The Hoover Public Library has some Guidelines for you to follow:

  1. Arrive early! We begin each program right on time, and you do not want to miss any fun!
  2. Visit the restroom before storytime begins.
  3.  Please be considerate. Take crying infants and disruptive children out of the story room.
  4. Listen, listen, listen. Parents and children should be as quiet as possible while the storyteller is speaking. Each storytime    incorporates finger-plays, songs and movement, so you have plenty of time to shake out your sillies.
  5.  Parents should sit with children to prevent distractions.
  6.  Enjoy yourselves. Each program is designed to introduce kids to the pleasures of reading.
