Rhythm & Rhyme Storytime - For Winter!

Registration begins January 19.

3, 4 & 5 year olds will meet on Tuesdays at 10:00-10:45 a.m., February 2, 9, 16, 23 & March 1, 8. 

Parents watch your children march to a beat with happy feet. It is time to register your children for the Morton Public Library’s Rhythm and Rhyme Story Time. We plan to explore books with a beat and have lots of fun with rhythm and rhyme.

3, 4 & 5 year olds will meet for six sessions from 10:00-10:45 a.m. every Tuesday, February 2 through March 8. The sessions will include stories, finger-plays, rhythm instruments, songs, and fun. This is a great opportunity for a child to meet and interact with children their own age and gain a love of reading at an early age.

Story Times are limited to 20 children and registration is required. Once your child is registered, they are registered for all six sessions. To register, visit the Morton Public Library at 315 W. Pershing or call 309-263-2200.


Sign & Sing Story Time

Sign and Sing Storytime, presented by Communication Junction, will be held at Morton Library on the first and third Mondays in 2016. Sessions will be held from 9:15 to 9:45 a.m.  Participants will enjoy 30 minutes of fun stories, rhymes and fingerplays with their little one.

Communication Junction has been offering sign languages classes to infants, toddlers, preschoolers and their caregivers for more than five years. This exciting program is designed to engage children and encourage a love of books, while building vocabulary. Each “Sign and Sing Story Time” is created around a central topic and American Sign Language is used to highlight key vocabulary. 

Funding for "Sign and Sing Story Time" is made possible all this year through a grant recommended by Phil & Barb Kuhl, from the Phil & Barb Kuhl Donor Choice Fund, a component Donor Advised Fund of the Morton Community Foundation.
