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 the “Getting Ready for Storytime” page.

Can’t make it to the library for storytime? Visit our “Storytime @ Home” page to explore themed early literacy activities to help keep kids reading, singing, playing, writing, and talking every day.  

Please Note: Check the calendar for occasional changes, special events or cancellations. Preregistration is not required, unless you are bringing a group of six or more children. For group visits, please call the Children’s Desk at 512-218-3275.
