The Natrona County Public Library will resume its story times for children on Tuesday, January 4th. The story times are programs where kids can hear stories read aloud for children from babies up through preschool age.

Story times settings:

"We do our regular story time for 3- to 5-year-olds and their caregivers; that is held at 10:30 am, Tuesdays at the Mills branch library, and then Wednesdays, Thursdays and Saturdays at the main library, same time."

Brenda Thomson, community relations coordinator for the library, says even reading aloud to infants is good for them.

Early language skills:

"We've got a tiny tot time for infants and toddlers, and that's at 10:30 on Tuesdays at the main library. And it may seem like that's really early to start reading to kids, but of course it helps them to start developing their language skills, to start understanding how books work, how to turn pages, that sort of thing. It's also a great thing for parents 'cause they can come and get tips on how to read for their children and how to get them prepared for school."

For more information you can call the library or go to their Web site.
