Rainbow Storytimes at the Library help children develop early literacy skills and provide a safe space where everyone can find stories that reflect their personal experiences. The stories presented are selected for their ability to engage young audiences and to explore universal human themes, such as growing up, learning, friendship, cooperation, honesty, responsibility, self-acceptance, and overcoming obstacles.
