Toddler Storytime (Fall 2018)
Age(s) 1-3
The Fargo Public Library has several storytimes available for families and caregivers where staff share their love of books and reinforce early literacy skills. Through the use of age-appropriate stories, songs, and fingerplays in a group setting, staff also help parents and caregivers learn how to foster early literacy skills to prepare their children for learning to read.

Toddler Storytimes are for children 18 months to 3 years of age. During the toddler storytime sessions, parents/guardians are required to sit with their children in the storytime area. Toddler Storytimes are generally 20 minutes in length.

Large group space is limited. Daycares and groups of five or more children need to call Children's Services at 701.241.1495 to register.

Basic Storytime Guidelines

Please note that all storytimes start promptly on schedule. Be sure to allow extra time for parking and getting nametags.

Please refrain from bringing food and beverage into storytime.
If children in your care become disruptive, please remove them until they are comfortable and ready to listen.
