“Studies show that the best thing you can do to get kids ready for school is to read to them,” said Youth Services Librarian Ellen Smith. “Our Storytimes make learning and reading fun and engaging for kids and paves the way for happiness and success later in life.”
“Storytime is also a great way for little ones to start to socialize, and for their grownups to feel the support of the community,” said Library Associate and Storytime Lead Fawn Kemble.
The Palmdale City Library is open Monday through Thursday from 10 a.m. to 8 p.m., Friday and Saturday from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m., and Sunday from 1 to 5 p.m.
