Outreach Storytimes for Preschoolers

Each month, Mrs. Shaia, Children’s Librarian, will be bringing her suitcase of storytime themes to Litchfield Headstart, Room to Grow, School on the Green, and the 3-year and 4-year old classes at Litchfield Center School. Each program is unique, supports the preschool curriculum, and includes new and classic picture books, flannel board stories, fingerplays, musical instruments, puppets and a themed craft. PLUS, Mrs. Shaia brings books from OWL’s extensive collection for the schools to borrow each month!
