  Story Time Etiquette
what to expect at a story time

Start Time -  Plan on arriving at the beginning of the story time.  It is less disruptive and more fun for everyone if people aren't coming into the room and getting settled as the librarian is reading or giving instructions.
Fussy Child- If your child is having a tough day, please feel free to leave the room.  You are welcome to return when he or she has settled down, or to try again next week.
Cell Phones- Please silence your cell phone and plan on returning calls after you leave the story time room.
Parents Visiting - This is a time to share with your child. Please make plans to visit and chat with other parents before the story time begins or after the program ends.  
Food and Snacks - Plan to feed your child before or after story time. 
Parent Participation - It will be more fun for you and your child if you join in the songs and activites during story time.
