Our spring Storytime sessions have been cancelled. Please check back soon for new information on storytimes that will begin again on June 1st. In the meantime, enjoy some fun online storytimes from the Jbrary blog.

All storytimes meet in the Tami Borck Storytime Room in the Children’s Room. No registration is required and all events are free and open to the public.

Daycares can schedule a separate monthly storytime for their group.

Family Fun Storytime

Families are encouraged to attend together

Saturdays | 11 AM

Sing, dance, and enjoy great stories with a librarian on Saturday morning. These interactive storytimes are super charged to develop early literacy. An adult caregiver must attend with children ages 2 or younger.

Learning is fun!

Storytime activities are based in neuroscience. By moving their arms and legs across their bodies, exploring rhyming words and songs, following directions, and interacting with books, kids are actually preparing their brains to learn to read. If you would like more early literacy tips, please ask a librarian the next time you visit. We love to talk about learning!
