Port Angeles Main Library

Friday,  December 9,  10:30am
Friday,  December 16,  10:30am

Get into the groove during Movement Storytime! Children ages 0-5 and their parents or caregivers are invited to the Port Angeles Main Library for these special storytime programs designed to get the wiggles out.

Featuring songs, rhymes, and stories for movers and shakers, children will strengthen their bodies and brains with creative movements, and explore their imaginations while practicing balance and creating rhythm. These programs will help develop large and fine motor skills, spatial awareness, and help improve balance and coordination. Best of all, they will encourage playfulness and lots of silliness!
