📖 Weekly Story Times in Douglas County

at Douglas County Libraries & local businesses in Castle Rock, Highlands Ranch, Lone Tree, & Parker

By Kyrie Collins, Highlands Ranch-Parker-Castle Rock-Lone Tree Publisher January 3, 2022

When it comes to teaching kids to love reading, it may be hard to believe that doing as simple as reading aloud can matter so much.

When parents start reading to children at a very young age, they demonstrate that reading is important and that reading is more than simply sounding out letters and words. Reading, talking, and sharing your thoughts about books encourages children to think, and promotes vocabulary development and higher-level thinking.

NOTE: Please keep in mind that storytimes can change without notice. We recommend you call in advance.

Join Douglas County Libraries this June and July for Outdoor Storytime! Storytimes take place at Discovery Park in Parker, Chatfield Farms Park in Roxborough, Festival Park in Castle Rock, Civic Green Park in Highlands Ranch, Coyote Ridge Park in Castle Pines, and on the Lone Tree Library front lawn. View the schedule at www.dcl.org/storytime.
