Laptime is a library program for babies and toddlers that incorporates books, songs, fingerplays and nursery rhymes. Laptime Songs is a place to find inspiration and resources for bringing the laptime program to life in the library and at home! Amber Passey, founding editor of Laptime Songs and Because Babies Grow Up, discovered the laptime program through the Orem Public Library. I loved the program so much that when the opportunity arose, I volunteered to be a teller.
After volunteering at the Orem Public Library for over a year, my family and I moved to Tennessee. We found a terrific children’s librarian at the Bell County Library in Middlesboro, Kentucky. She had programs for all ages, but due to lack of time in her schedule, she didn’t have a program for babies and toddlers. I was excited to offer to start the laptime program and Cindy was excited to get a laptime program going. We’ve had fun introducing our new friends to the library and inviting them to continue to enjoy music and books outside of the library.
