Do you enjoy playing with babies?  Do you want to  introduce them to the library world by having fun together singing, reading and do some body movement? 

We are recruiting more volunteers to expand our very popular storytimes for the very young.  If you are interested in learning how to lead storytimes for babies and their mothers, please contact the Children’s Desk at (510)745-1421 during the library open hours or you can send an email to jtsou@aclibrary.org.  These storytime for babies will be running once a week for about 40 minutes each time in every other month.

The upcoming training sessions are scheduled  on two consecutive Tuesdays, 4/12 and 4/19 at 2-4 p.m.

Come and give it a try.  Believe me, it’s rewarding to see the smiles on the babies’ faces.

Have your little ones been to Centerville Library’s Read-To-Me Storytime?  Read-To-Me is a drop-in storytime conducted by trained teen volunteers.  It is offered on every Thursday afternoon from 3:30 to 4:30.  Children ages 2-6 and parents are welcome to stop by anytime when the storytime is in session.   Many children have been coming every week and the Read-To-Me area gets a little crowded at times.  But hey, I say that’s a kind of fun children enjoy–making friends and getting excited about the stories together!

Here is one of the stories we have enjoyed recently.
