Storytime for 2- to 6-year-olds, designed to excite young children about books and reading, begins at the Severna Park library Sept. 22.

Two-year-olds will meet at 9:30 a.m. Wednesdays and Thursdays. Ages 3 to 6 will meet at 1:30 p.m. Wednesdays and 10:30 a.m. Thursdays.

An evening Storytime for ages 2 to 6 will meet at 7 p.m. Wednesdays.

Parents or care-givers are asked to stay with 2- and 3-year-olds. Information: 222-6290.

The Career Development Center at Anne Arundel Community College believes the future is now. Counselors offer free help to students and the public with their resume-writing and job-interview techniques.
