Preschool Story Time

Story time at the Peru Public Library is a program for children ages 3-5  in which we share stories based on a weekly theme.  Join Miss Lynn and Miss Meridith each week as they engage your child through picture books, songs, poems, finger plays, and puppets. New this fall is “Explore and Learn”,  where during certain story times, we will add a preschool-appropriate science experiment to connect stories to real life. Every Wednesday at 10:30 a.m. we meet at the Story Time Castle for a really great time. Hope to see you there.
