Fall Story Times

Children residing in or being cared for by grandparents or other caregivers who are residents of Upper Saucon Township, Lower Milford Township or Coopersburg Borough are eligible to register for Story Time sessions. The library requires that the parent/legal guardian/caregiver be a registered patron of the library and a patron in good standing at the time of registration. Children residing outside our service area are only permitted to register for the waiting list and they will be contacted if space becomes available. Grandparents or other relatives who reside within our service area and have young children visiting from out of state may inquire ahead of time at the Circulation Desk about space availability in Story Time sessions during the child’s visit. Someone will respond to your inquiry as soon as they have consulted with the Children’s Programming Librarian. Most often, we are happy to accommodate visitors for a short period of time.

If your child cannot attend one of the weekly sessions, please notify the library immediately by telephone at 610-282-8834 or via email at youthregistrations@solehipl.org. Most of the library’s storytimes do fill to capacity and have a waiting list. Therefore, two consecutive absences and failure to immediately notify the library staff will result in forfeiture of your child’s slot in the program.
