Are you looking for ways to help your little ones fall in love with learning? Look no further than the library, where we offer a variety of story times designed to encourage a lifelong passion for language and reading. 

Our early literacy programs are perfect for children from birth to those entering kindergarten, focusing on five basic skills: talking, reading, writing, singing, and playing. And the best part? You get to create special moments with your child while helping them develop the skills they need to succeed in school and beyond. 

We even have a special Sensory Story Time that combines traditional story time components with sensory elements ideal for children who would benefit from a more low-key gathering. This program is suitable for kids ages 2 and up with a caregiver. Registration is required.  Visit our calendar at for dates and times. 

Our Baby Bounce & Books story time features stories and songs that will keep you and your child moving. Designed for babies up to age 35 months and caregivers, this program takes place Tuesdays at 10 a.m. and 11 a.m. You choose the time that works best for you! 

Enjoy stories, songs, and more with your child ages 0 to 6 at our Family Story Time, which is held on Wednesdays at 10 a.m. and 11 a.m. Family Story Time will also take place on Thursdays at 10 a.m. during the month of March. 

Music and Movement returns in April, and will take place Thursdays at 10 a.m. and 11 a.m., outside on the Green, weather permitting. Get active with songs, dancing, learning, and fun for kids ages 0 to 6 with a caregiver. 

Saturday Story Time is perfect for caregivers who are unavailable during the weekdays. This weekly program, featuring stories, songs, and more for kids ages 0 to 6, takes place on Saturdays at 11 a.m. 

Please note that all of our story times are open to children of all abilities, and no sign-up is required unless noted. But space is limited, so be sure to arrive promptly. And remember: When Bethlehem schools are closed or delayed, all story times are canceled. Visit our calendar at to search all of our upcoming story times.
