Story Time at the Library

Free event gives kids the chance to enjoy books

Every Wednesday is story time at the Duluth Public Library.

The free event gives kids the chance to enjoy books, songs, and rhymes, plus develop early literacy skills.

The library has separate classes for babies and toddlers and preschool aged children.

“Kids of course are always learning and you should start reading with babies as soon as they’re born, which is what we do. We encourage families as soon as they have children to come and join us for story time,” says Kristy Nerhaugen, youth services coordinator at the Duluth Public Library.

“We really use it as an opportunity to teach parents how to interact with books and with their kids and also just to have fun with kids and to sing and to play and all of those fun things.”

Story times are Wednesdays at 10:15 and 11:15am at the main library. They are also held at the West Duluth and Mount Royal library branches.
