Story Hour FAQ
What is Story Hour anyway?
Story Hour is simply a fun way for your child to become familiar with the library and to experience the world of books.
Who can come to Story Hour?
Story Hour is designed for 3, 4, & 5 year olds. Songs, stories, crafts and finger plays are geared toward those age levels.
What exactly do you do in Story Hour?
We sing songs, read stories, maybe watch a short cartoon, and do a craft. We might even have puppets, flannel graphs, games or snacks depending on the book for the day and how much time we have.
Do I need to stay with my child during Story Hour?
Parents and caregivers are welcome to stay during Story Hour. You may also check out books or read. Sandy does asked that parents or caregivers remain at the library while your child is in Story Hour.
How long does Story Hour last?
The entire Story Hour year runs from September through the end of April. Sessions are every Friday and begin at 10:30 a.m. and last 45 minutes to an hour.
Is Story Hour ever canceled?
Yes, there are times that Sandy is out of town for a conference, but she tries to include that on the calendar so you will have plenty of notice. During the winter months, Story Hour is canceled if Pendleton County Schools are canceled due to bad weather. If you are ever in doubt, please call the library: 859.654.8535.
What about Story Hour parties?
We have four parties during the year: Halloween, Christmas, Valentine’s Day, and Easter. (For party dates, there will be only one session time instead of the normal two.) The library provides plates, cups, napkins, drinks, and some snacks for these parties. Additional donations of snacks or treats for the kids are always welcome.
If you have any questions about Story Hour, please call Sandy Florence at 859.654.8535.
