MEL Storytime is a Mérida English Library program that is free and open to the general public. The purpose of the program is to encourage the habit of reading in children and their families, and to motivate imagination, creativity, vocabulary and English language skills.

The Storytime Committee is organizing different new activities to provide a great experience every time time you visit MEL. 

We start the day gathering on the patio to sing a song or engage in physical activation. A volunteer presents and reads the book of the day, which is generally available in the Children's Section. To complement the day, we participate in an artistic craft project, all materials are provided, which is  designed for kids to have fun, while improving their motor skills by painting, coloring, molding, etc...

Storytime has a limited capacity of 25 kids per program. To participate you must register by sending an email to letting us know the name and age of each child who is participating. 

This is an event for the whole family to enjoy. Coffee, soda, water, cookies and other sweets will be available for sale during the event. 

Your donations support this great Mérida English Library program.

According to our calendar, the books and activities are different for each Storytime, and focus on a theme, such as well being, health, history, nature, science, etc.
