Preschool Story Time Programs

This Fall, we have lots of options for our littlest library friends!  Here's a guide to help you know which programs are best for you and your little ones!  Please see our  Events Calendar for our schedule as holidays and other programming may alter the schedule.  

These programs are designed and developmentally appropriate for recommended ages, but slightly younger or older children are welcome at their caregiver's discretion and siblings are always welcome!

Program Descriptions:

Preschool Story Time: 

Join us for our fall session of indoor Story Time on Mondays at 9:30AM in our newly-renovated program room and Mondays at 10:30AM on the lawn!

This Story Time session will feature themed stories and crafts.  Sing, move, and read with us! This program is designed for 3-6 year olds, but siblings and slightly younger or older children are welcome at their caregiver's discretion!  We can't wait to read with you!

Indoor and Outdoor Story Times feature the same books, songs, and crafts, so in the event of inclement weather, outdoor story time will be cancelled.

Mother Goose on the Loose:

Mother Goose on the Loose is back for the fall session!  This program is best for children ages 0-2 and their caregivers.  Older siblings are welcome to attend.  

We will be holding this program outdoors on Tuesdays @ 9:30AM as long as the weather allows.  Please bring chairs or blankets to sit on!

If the weather is very  poor, we will move indoors.  Thank you!

We can't wait to see you!

Toddler Talk and Play:

The Upper Room, a Family Resource Center in Derry New Hampshire will collaborate with the Hampstead Public Library this fall to bring you Toddler Talk and Play Programs every other week.

These programs will provide opportunities for play-based learning and social learning for our littlest library friends.  Each week, Miss Jenn will share a book which will be followed by a craft and a snack.  The structured portion of this program will last approximately 15 minutes and the majority of the program will be unstructured playtime.  There will be different toys and sensory experiences available for the kids each week with hints and suggestions for caregivers about different ways to explore with toddlers.  

These programs are designed for ages 0-2, though older siblings are welcome!

Space is limited to 12 children per session.  You must sign up for each session you wish to attend HERE.
