following services to the children of our community:
Regular Story Hours/Library Visits
Beginning each year in September and January, our
library offers a weekly story time for each of these
groups: "Lap Babies," "Time for Twos," "Three-Five
Year Old," and "After School Story Time."
Story hours and visits are provided for the
Shepherdstown Day Care Center, the Shepherd
University Nursery School, the local Montessori
schools, Trinity Church Treasure Kids, and other
The library welcomes visits from homeschoolers,
scout troops, Shepherdstown Elementary School
students, and field trips from other schools. With
FOSL support, the Library brings in professional
storytellers whose performances are provided to the
public free of charge. The library also serves the
many elementary, junior high and high school
students who come in search of reference materials
for writing contests, science fairs, social studies
fairs, and classroom reports. These children have
access not only to our collection, but to
interlibrary loans and Internet resources, as
well. The children's department is also frequently
used by Shepherd University students in the field of
