In the Spotlight: Storytimes for Children

The Michele Arnhold Children’s Library offers a variety of storytimes for children of all ages!

Storytime for children, from infancy through grade school, has been a tradition at most public libraries for many years. And the imaginations of countless children have been captured through these library storytimes!

In today’s highly technological world, librarians continue this tradition of helping to stimulate learning and a love for reading by developing an early appreciation of literature. Here at the Bethel Public Library, we invite you to bring your children to one of the many storytimes we offer!
