NBPL Named "Best Library Storytelling Time"
We are pleased to announce that Newport Beach Public Library was named the 2017 Editor's Choice for "Best Library Storytelling Time" in Parenting OC's 15th Annual Reader's Choice Guide.
According to Parenting OC editors, the hard work of 23,781 Orange County business and organizations was considered before final awards were announced for the 100 Reader's and Editor's Choice categories.
The selection of Newport Beach Public Library as Editor's Choice for "Best Library Storytelling Time" notes, " Stories, songs and poems are shared with enthusiasm at this beach city library. This is a place where kids can wear their pajamas to Monday night bedtime stories, or participate in crafts after hearing a tale. Special programs like BARK (Beach Area dogs Reading with Kids) and Art in the Spring enhance kid's literary love."
Newport Beach Public Library offers sixteen weekly storytimes at the four library locations. Each storytime is geared for enjoyment by specific ages groups, such as Babies and Books, Toddler Storytime, Preschool Storytime, Pajama Storytime and Family Storytime. Most include a craft activity, funded by the Friends of the Library, following the stories and songs.
Special storytelling programs, presented by the NBPL Foundation, are held throughout the year as part of the Foundation's Making Memories for Children series which connects reading with fun activities such as art, yoga, and nature programs.
