Preschool Storytime taking registrations

The Fort Dodge Public Library is now accepting registrations for summer preschool storytime.

Storytimes begin on June 11 and 12 and will conclude on July 23 and 24. Children 3 to 6 years of age and who have not yet attended kindergarten are eligible for registration. Storytimes will be held 10 to 10:30 a.m. and 11 to 11:30 a.m. on Wednesdays, and 10 to 10:30 a.m. and 11 to 11:30 a.m. on Thursdays.

There is no fee for this program that offers some children their first classroom experience without a parent. Children listen to stories, learn fingerplays and take the first steps toward early literacy during storytime.

Parents may call or stop by the children’s department of the library to register their child. Registration is taken on a first come, first served basis until all classes are full. The children’s department phone number is 573-8167, ext. 242.
