ABOUT STORYTIMES AT THE CHAPPAQUA LIBRARY  

There are two schools of thought with regard to storytimes. The first is that children deserve programs developmentally geared to them, so we create special storytimes for specific ages. The second is that there are advantages to family story experiences: older children help younger children learn. For this reason, and to make it easier for siblings to attend together, we now offer multi-age storytimes along with our regular schedule. We ask that you respect the age guidelines listed for each program.  

We carefully plan storytime for you and your child. Please help us make it a happy and successful time by being aware of the following:  

1)Please come on time. Parking is often a problem here, so coming 10 minutes early will enable you to be relaxed and ready. If you are a few minutes late, please wait by the Program Room door until the librarian has finished the story or song that is in progress and then QUIETLY slip in. If you are more than fifteen minutes late, please do something else in the library: read a book together, play with toys, use the computer and try next time!  

2)Children learn by watching, which is why you must show your child how to "go to storytime." Please do not read magazines or books or talk during storytime (even just little side comments to your friends) so that your children learn to be attentive, active participants.  

3)Toys, books and/or other playthings distract children from the focus of storytime, making it harder for them to enjoy the program. Please do not bring these items into storytime. Also eating and drinking are not allowed in the library at any time. If your child must have a snack, please eat outside the building before or after the program. This is also true of bottles and spill proof cups. When they are visible, every child in the room will be interested in them.

4)Sometimes children change their minds about being at storytime or realize that they have had enough. They squirm, talk with a friend, flop on the floor or don't want to participate-these are very good signs that it is time to go. Please watch your child's behavior so that you can recognize these signs, leaving quickly and quietly. Once you leave the room, PLEASE do not go back in since running in and out is disruptive to the other children. There will always be another storytime, another day, so try to make library time pleasant for everyone.
