All libraries in the Appalachian Regional Library system, except for the Western Watauga Branch Library, are currently open to the public. Masks are required to enter, and building capacities and length of visits will be reduced for the time being. 

[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.
