Raise-a-reader storytime kits
These kits are “programs in a box” that help early childhood educators present fun and effective storytimes. Each themed kit contains:
• a felt story
• resource and activity manual for educators
We have more than 25 popular themes to support your daycare or centre's curriculum and interests. You do not need a special card to check out these kits: they are available for anyone to borrow.
Designed specifically with childcare providers in mind, our ECE collection can be accessed by anyone with a library card and offers resources on:
• themed preschool activities
• reading readiness
• selecting children’s books
• and much, much more!
Looking for resources on a particular theme or ECE issue? We can help you gather books, music or DVDs for circle times or class units.
Library and outreach visits
Want to bring your class to the library for a storytime? Interested in having a librarian visit your child care facility? We do our best to accommodate every request. Please note that we are a small staff with limited availability and require at least three weeks notice for all bookings.
