Many of us remember being enthralled by a librarian who brought picture books to life for us when we were children. Kids enjoy storytime today as much as their parents or grandparents did, but there are so many different options now. Which storytime is right for your child? Dayton Metro Library has storytimes for different age groups, interests and needs. Choose what works best for you and your child.
