It's never too early or too late to start sharing rhymes, songs and books with your child! 

Storytimes are an opportunity for parents and caregivers to learn new songs and ideas to enhance early literacy interactions with their youngsters everyday. In addition, children find storytimes entertaining! Every San Francisco Public Library location has weekly storytime offerings.

 Storytime for Babies: Songs, rhymes and books for infants and their caregivers.

Storytime for Toddlers: Books, songs, movement and more. For toddlers 16 months through age 2 and their caregivers.

Storytime for Preschoolers: Books, songs, fingerplays and more for ages 3–5.
