We have been taking Emma to Huntington Beach’s Central Library story time on Saturday mornings when we have time. She loves it!!
(sorry for the blurry pic!)
She loves it so much that whenever I say I have to go to the store…she thinks I am saying story time and starts crying if she can’t come along. Now I have to avoid saying that and say I am going to go buy something instead 😛
Every week, they pick a different theme and read 3-4 books relating to that theme. The lady who does the reading is very animated and includes a lot of song and hand movements that the kids love. At the end, you get a stamp and sometimes a treat related to the theme! We’ve gotten cookies, bubbles, and stickers before. Afterwards a lot of the parents hang around in the children’s book area with their kids which is also full of toys for the kids to play with.
You can see the days and times the library has their story time here. There are different ones for different age groups. We go to the toddler one at 10am on Saturdays. The link also includes a calendar of their monthly events. Sometimes they have crafts and plays for the kids. I really love the Huntington Beach library – definitely one of the perks of being an HB resident.
