Storytime at the Birmingham Public Library Popular with Young Patrons

Storyteller Fontaine Alison at the Wylam Library

What child does not like being read a good book? If you have children in Birmingham, the Birmingham Public Library has plenty of locations across the city offering storytime for kids in day cares, schools, and youth groups looking for activities that entertain and educate young minds at the same time.

Every Friday, patrons at Southside Branch Library receive a visit from BPL storytellers reading books that make them laugh or carry them on adventures worldwide via the written word.

On Thursday, September 20, Wylam Branch Library hosted a popular program, Storytime with Ms. Fontaine. Storyteller Fontaine Alison of Five Points West Regional Branch Library leads the youth in weekly stories, songs, movement, and more that encourage development of early literacy skills in  children.

Also September 20, the Eastwood Branch Library hosted its weekly storytime program while the Avondale Regional Branch Library hosted a similar program, It's Time for Tales, an action-packed preschool storytime with stories, songs, and lots of fun for everyone. 
Check out the BPL events calendar and you will find plenty of storytime opportunities and other free programs for patrons of all ages.
