What it is: Stories, fingerplays, music and more for children from infancy to 23 months of age. It is held every Monday at the Durham County Main Library from 10:30 to 11:00 am.
What we like: It is one of the best places in the area that provides a story time appropriate for toddlers. The room where the story time is held is very large with plenty of space.
Each child gets his/her own cushion and stuffed animal. Tom, who typically does the story time each week is very entertaining and good with the kids. He provides musical instruments and encourage the kids to get up and dance during the music portion of the story time.
The library also offers a toddler story time (for ages 2+) from 10:30 to 11:30 am every Wednesday and a Saturday morning story time (up to 1st grade) that incorporates in a craft time.
The library has a wonderful kids area outside of the story room with lots of books, puzzles and wooden activity cubes.
What we don't like: It can get a bit crowded and chaotic especially when there a lot of kids or older siblings there.
