Story hours at the library

Starting Jan 9, from 6:30 to 7:30 p.m. on Tuesdays, the Jamestown library will offer a two-month-long children’s hour with a different community helper reading a story to children 3 to 8 years old.

These sessions will be a wonderful opportunity for children to meet members of the community, ranging from firemen to the post office workers, and hear them read.

Preschool storytimes

Beginning Jan. 8, Mother Goose Times for infants and babies up through 24 months old with their caregivers will be held Monday mornings from 11:15 to 11:45 a.m. Mother Goose Time features nursery rhymes, finger games, music, and board books.
