Parents who want help in keeping their infants and toddlers book-engaged can find resources in the community, including the Phoenix Public Library branches, which offer regular weekly storytime events.
For example, the Acacia Library hosts a “DIY Storytime” 5:30-6 p.m. Wednesday, Sept. 2. Share books, stories, songs, rhymes and music in a fun, fast-paced program that will delight your little ones. This program is for children birth to 5 years but older children are welcome. This program is repeated at the same time on Sept. 16.
