Fall Storytime Schedule at the Cazenovia Public Library

The Cazenovia Public Library will begin its fall storytime schedule on Monday, Sept. 9.

Offered five days a week, “Storytime in the Story Garden” encourages children to develop early literacy skills through active listening, interaction, exploration, and play in an inviting environment.

Each engaging session is thoughtfully designed by trained early literacy specialists to foster a lifelong love of reading and learning.

Children under age 2 and their caregivers are invited to join Betsy Kennedy on Mondays and Tuesdays at 10:15 a.m. for Baby Storytime. Each 45-minute session is divided into two sections — the first half features books, songs, rhymes, and movement activities, while the second half is dedicated to open playtime. Siblings are welcome.

Toddler Storytime, led by Jenna Wright Martin, is offered Wednesdays at 10:15 a.m. for children ages 2-3 and their caregivers. Weekly sessions feature books, songs, activities and open playtime.

Explore & Learn sessions (for ages 3-6) are specifically designed to promote learning, creativity and socialization through hands-on activities and observation. Children are invited to join Ms. Jenna on Thursdays at 10:15 a.m. for sensory activities, scientific exploration, stories, songs, and art projects.

Karen Kogut will present Music and Movement Storytime for children ages 2 and up on Fridays at 10:15 a.m. Sessions will feature singing, reading, story telling and large motor games.

Music and movement programs not only facilitate the development of language and listening skills, they can also aid in a child’s physical and cognitive development.

The Library’s dedication to promoting literacy extends beyond its walls.

The Story Room at CazCares is a library-sponsored early literacy initiative that operates out of the Food Pantry at 101 Nelson Street.

The program provides preschool children with foundational pre-literacy skills through language-rich guided play, read-aloud experiences, and learning activities.

The Story Room is open during normal CazCares hours (Monday, Tuesday, Thursday 9:30 a.m. to noon, and Monday 4 to 6 p.m.)

Families are invited to attend all storytime sessions and encouraged to check out books to continue reading at home.
