- Caregivers newer to attending storytime placed great value on the fact that storytimes are free and on the opportunity for their children to socialize with other children.
- Some caregivers (19%) reported that the child’s schedule (falls during naptime/snack time, etc.) could be a barrier to attending storytime. The majority of the respondents (37%) chose “Other” for the barrier question, and the majority of these noted timing-related barriers such as being a working parent or another family member’s conflicting schedule.
- The top four ways caregivers found out about a storytime program they attended were a friend’s recommendation (24%), the library’s website (25%), a library advertisement (22%), and a librarian’s recommendation (17%).
