Story Time Kits now available!
The Oconee County Public Library is excited to announce the debut of a new resource in our children’s collection: storytime kits! Storytime kits are just what they sound like – collections of books and activities with a central theme that help you create meaningful literary experiences with your child. With kit themes like counting, colors, ABCs, and much more, you and your little ones are sure to find a fun kit to take home and enjoy.
Each kit comes with several picture books, an interactive toy, a suggested craft, and a tip sheet featuring songs, rhymes, and activities caregivers can use to supplement the materials and have their very own storytime at home, or in the park, or on the go! The kits have been thoughtfully developed to build important early literacy skills in young children. Engaging in a variety of storytime activities – both at home and at the library – builds a foundation for life-long reading skills.
Storytime kits can circulate like all other library materials, and are checked out for 4 weeks. Don’t see a storytime kit on the shelves? You can place holds on them as you would any other library materials so that they will be reserved for you when they are returned.
These kits are funded by a generous grant from the South Carolina State Library.
