The Pierce-Streetsboro Library will begin registrations for fall storytime on Aug. 18.
"Little Listeners" for ages 2 to 5 will meet on Tuesdays at 11:15 a.m. or Wednesdays at 10:30 a.m. beginning the week of Sept. 8 and ending the week of Oct. 6. Storytimes include stories, music, crafts, puppets, finger plays and flannel board stories. This is an excellent way to acquaint children with the library, foster a love for reading, and help them become "ready to read."

The library, located at 8990 Kirby Lane, is open Monday and Tuesday 11 a.m. to 7 p.m., Wednesday and Friday 10 a.m. to 6 p.m., and Saturday 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. The library is closed on Thursdays and Sundays.
