Preschoolers ages 3-5 and their parents/caregivers are welcome to come for a story time filled with stories, songs, rhymes and puppets at the Carnegie Library of Pittsburgh Knoxville Branch, 400 Brownsville Rd.
This series of programs is designed to engage a child's interest in reading and is based on Pennsylvania Early Learning Standards. The programs are offered at 1:30 p.m. each Thursday afternoon through October. Themes for this month include "Autumn Leaves," "Apples & Pumpkins," and "A Not-So-Scary Halloween." A creative craft time adds to the fun each week. Register in advance.
