Family storytimes set for Forks Library

Storytimes will take place at 10:30 a.m. Fridays through next May.

FORKS — Family storytimes at the Forks Library will resume at 10:30 a.m. today and continue Fridays throughout the fall and spring.

The weekly storytime sessions for children up to age 5 and their parents or caregivers will run through May 26, 2017, at the library, 171 S. Forks Ave.

No storytime programs are planned Nov. 11, Nov. 25, Dec. 23 and Dec. 30.

Rhymes, songs, books

Library storytimes feature rhymes, songs, dancing and books for young children.

Activities such as talking, reading, playing and singing all play an important role in early childhood development, say officials with the North Olympic Library System, which oversees public libraries in Forks, Clallam Bay, Port Angeles and Sequim.

Offering tips

Storytimes also provide support to parents and caregivers by offering tips for effective ways to read, talk, sing and play with the children in their lives.
