Patrons spoke, and the library listened.storytime @ your library

Last fall’s move to uniform story hours for toddlers and preschoolers was not well-received by parents and caregivers, so Boyd County Public Library is switching back to its previous times.

The 2013 story time programs include Toddler Time at the Catlettsburg, Main and Kyova branches; and Preschool Story Time at Main and Kyova. The Catlettsburg programs will resume as soon as the branch reopens in February (an exact date has not been set).

Toddler Time is a 20-30 minute program featuring songs, short stories and active play, and is designed for those just starting to walk through age 3. Activities are adapted by trained library staff to match the attention span of toddlers. In 2013, Toddler Time will take place on Mondays at 10:30 a.m. at Catlettsburg; and on Fridays at 11:30 a.m. at Main, and at 1 p.m. at Kyova.

Preschool Story Time, for ages 3 to 5, is a 30-45 minute program featuring books, songs, and games. The stories are longer and more complex than the ones in Toddler Time. It will be on Tuesdays at 1:30 p.m. at Kyova, and one Wednesdays at 11 a.m. at Main.

The Main Branch is located at 1740 Central Ave., Ashland. The one in Catlettsburg is at 2704 Louisa Street. The Kyova Branch is in the Kyova Mall, across from Elder-Beerman.

The Library can also arrange special story times for home school groups, day cares, etc. To set something up, please call (606) 329-0518, ext. 1300.
