The summer reading programs may have ended, but that’s no excuse to stop visiting your local library! Get ready to dive back into books with your kids. The whole family can curl up and enjoy story time together for free at these San Diego libraries. Kids don’t have to be school-age to enjoy reading, either. Click through the slideshow to check out these spots that have a variety of programs for kids of all ages, infant to teen!
Escondido Public Library
The Escondido Public Library has different storytime programs for kids of all ages offered on nearly every day of the week. Times and schedules for the programs are subject to change, so be sure to check the library’s website or call for the full storytime schedule.
For infants ages 0-24 months: The Wee Wigglers Storytime engages both parents and their babies. The story time includes songs and books as well as some play time. The focus of the program is on developing language as well as social skills.
For ages 3-5: The Rhymes and Reading program combines music and books into a fun atmosphere that helps make books approachable for kids who aren’t yet reading. Kids and adults can clap along, sing, and answer questions as the storyteller reads through books and nursery rhymes.
For all ages: The Library also provides a bilingual storytime to help with Spanish and English language development. The program is open for kids and families of all ages, and includes stories as well as popular songs.
