The purpose of preschool storytime is to introduce the 3-5 year old to
good books and to the public library. It also gives children the opportunity
to listen to stories in a group and feel at home in the library atmosphere.
Castro Valley offers three sessions of storytime during the year: Fall,
Winter, and Spring. Registration is required and the library limits the
number of children accepted to ensure an enjoyable experience for all
listeners. Please phone the library for a current schedule, 510-667-7900.
The library is able to sponsor wonderful special events with funds provided
by the Friends of the Castro Valley Library. Storytelling, music and magic
are some of the many possibilities. Watch your local newspaper, or phone
the library for the latest information.
