In December 2017, we celebrated the retirement of two StoryRiders, Mama Patt and Miss Barbara. Both Patt and Barbara were valuable members of our team. Their dedication, energy, and passion for early childhood education was always evident.
They have positively impacted the lives of thousands of families throughout Berks County with their stories, songs, expertise, and enthusiasm. Sincere thanks to Barbara and Patt for bringing literacy to life for our youngest library members. Our very best wishes to Patt and Barbara as they begin their well-deserved retirements.
Do you want the best educational start for your child, but don’t know where to begin? Visit a StoryRider program! Our StoryRiders travel to public libraries throughout the County sharing songs, books, movement activities, and rhymes.
Quality early literacy programs lay the groundwork for a successful learning experience when school begins. Each program is carefully designed to incorporate best practices, benefiting your child's growth and development. Take-home guides for caregivers and children are included so learning can extend beyond the program. These curated guides include book suggestions, fingerplays, and playful learning activities.
Children of all abilities are always welcome. If your child has specific needs, please speak with your StoryRider prior to the program.
Plan ahead for storytime! Mark your calendar to visit Miss Kim at one of our Berks libraries. Remember to bring your questions about early literacy, book recommendations, or screen time for children. Miss Kim will be happy to answer your questions after storytime.
