Stories, movement activities, and songs for families with infants to preschoolers.
Storytime is a lively 30-minute combination of books, movement activities and songs best enjoyed by families with their children. Storytimes may also include supplemental activities, such as crafts, storytelling, poetry, riddles, and more.
Are you and your family members new to storytime? To prepare your child for his/her first storytime visit, watch and talk together about the information on this page.
Can’t make it to the library for storytime? Try our “Storytime @ Home” resources to explore themed early literacy activities to help keep kids reading, singing, playing, writing, and talking every day.
This is the regular schedule most weeks. Please check the online calendar for special events, changes, or cancelations.

Welcome to storytime at the Round Rock Public Library.
Storytime is an early literacy activity for caregivers and their children. Each week we explore a theme through books, storytelling, rhymes, songs, and play.
- Children succeed best alongside caregivers who are actively participating in the program.
- A great way to prepare your child for his / her first storytime visit would to be watch and talk together about the “What To Expect At Storytime” video.
- Come learn with us! You do not need to sign up to attend storytime; however, groups of six or more children must preregister. Please call the Children’s Reference desk at 512-218-7002 for more information or to preregister a group.

Storytime resources for caregivers and families.
Round Rock Public Library‘s Youth Services librarians have created special resources to help caregivers host their own fun storytime experiences outside of the library.
We’ve outlined early literacy activities to help keep kids reading, singing, playing, writing, and talking every day.
Online storytime videos
Join the storytime librarians for short videos featuring a book, song, or game.
Storytime @ Home themed kits
Library staff members have developed themed kits that extend several of our online storytimes with activities and free resources. Caregivers can use these kits to develop storytimes away from the library that incorporate the Early Literacy activities of reading, writing, singing, talking, and playing.
Browse the list of themes (below), download the handouts (featuring fun activities and free digital resources), then explore the lists of recommended books, and place holds. You can placed items on hold and pick them up in the building or through our outdoor holds lockers.
