Appalachian Regional Library has resumed curbside and virtual-only services. We will provide updates as soon as we're able to safely re-open our buildings to the public. PLEASE ALSO NOTE that all the libraries in the Appalachian Regional Library system will be entirely closed to the public on Thursday, Feb. 25.

[VIRTUAL] Ready to Read Storytime


Location: Your Home
Audience: Kids & Families

Miss Ashlin, Miss Marna, and Miss Molly want to help you get ready to read! Ashe County Public Library is proud to present Ready to Read storytimes starting Wednesday, February 3rd at 11 am.

These storytimes are great for story lovers of all ages, but especially 2-5 year olds who are building their reading skills.

Ready to Read storytimes help grow strong readers by modeling and encouraging the use of the five early literacy practices: read, sing, write, talk, and play. Each week, we will cover a new letter, sound, or word.
