Two programs for very young children will resume the week of Sept. 16 at the Salem Township Public Library.
The Lapsit and Storytime programs are starting up again following a summer hiatus. They are targeted to toddlers and preschool children who come with an adult caregiver.
Lapsit is open to children ages 18-36 months old. It will be held for 15 minutes, at 10:45 a.m., Wednesdays, beginning Sept. 18, at the library, 535 W. Pike St.
Toddlers and their adult caregivers will listen to short stories, along with participating in finger play, rhymes and songs.
Storytime is targeted to children ages 3-5. The focus is on teaching children the importance of listening to stories, singing songs, playing games and rhymes, interacting with books, making friends and doing simple crafts.
It meets for 30 minutes at 11 a.m. and repeats at 2 p.m., on Tuesdays, beginning Sept. 17.
Both programs are free but do require registration. Each follows the same them that includes a story and related activities.
