Evening Storytimes Added to Mockingbird Lineup

1326 N. Mockingbird Ln.
Reading books aloud with young children is one of the most important things we can do to help them achieve future success.  According to the American Library Association, "research on early literacy and brain development indicates that it is never too early to prepare children for success as readers."  Your Abilene Public Library has always been literacy focused, providing free storytimes and activities for all ages throughout the week at our many locations.  And starting in January, we will be offering a brand new program at Mockingbird Branch, Evening Storytime!

Evening Storytime will take place every Tuesday night at 6:30PM at your Mockingbird Branch Library (1326 N. Mockingbird Ln).  Created for children ages 2-6, this family-friendly literacy event is geared towards working families who may not be able to attend our traditional morning storytime sessions.  We'll have stories, songs, activities, and more to help you and your child strengthen key literacy skills.

We can't wait to offer this new exciting program to our community, and to meet your and your child.  Please stop by and join us for Evening Storytime on Tuesdays at 6:30PM starting January 3 at your Mockingbird Branch.  If you have any questions regarding this new program, contact us at 325-437-7323.
