Early Learning Programs at Whitman County Library

Mark your calendar each Thursday for Early Learning Storytime at the Colfax Library beginning Sept. 14!!!

Storytime at the Colfax branch is divided into three age groups:

  • baby time for ages 0-2 from 10:10-10:30 a.m. 
  • toddler time for ages 2-3 from 10:30-11:00 a.m.
  • preschool time for ages 4 & Up from 11:00-11:30 a.m. 
Storytime offers a valuable listening and pre-reading experience for children of all ages. The focus this year is “Learning the Alphabet from A to Z” featuring letters and sounds.  Each week a new letter is introduced with visual and phonemic activities, all planned to promote reading readiness in your child. Through stories, sharing, rhymes and songs children acquire information as well as an appreciation for the written word and fine illustration. 
Storytime allows each child time to share stories and to express him or herself. At Storytime, children participate in a variety of imaginative activities that include finger plays, games, crafts, puppets, and creative dramatics. These activities help promote cognitive development and reading readiness along with maximizing the critical years in a child’s brain development.
