Storytimes and Toddler Times  

Story Time at the library focuses on early literacy as it helps children develop a joy for learning language and enjoying books. We have Storytimes for every age group:

  • School-age story times are for 5 to 7 year olds
  • Preschool story times are geared towards 3-5 year-olds and include singing, stretchers, and creative activities.
  • Toddler Times are interactive story times for children ages 18 months to 3 years.
  • Mother Goose Time is a lively language enrichment story time serving our youngest folks--the 4 month-old to 18 month-old set.

Many libraries can accommodate groups or school field trips if arrangements are made in advance. West Asheville Library provides Spanish Story Times on request. Call any library for more information on the children’s programs available or email library@buncombecounty.org.

You may also check out Storytimes and Toddler Times by going to our library locations page and searching by library branch.
