Children & Teen Programs

Preschool Storytime

Each Thursday at 10:30 we offer a storytime for young children. We read books, sing songs, and do finger plays. We also offer a craft or activity after each program. Come join us!

Storytime follows the school calendar. If school is out for holidays or closed for inclement weather, then storytime is also cancelled.

Storytime takes a break from May through August.

1000 Books Before Kindergarten

Did you know…if you read just one book a day with your child, you’ll reach 1,000 books in less than three years? Come in and ask us how to get started on the 1,000 Books Before Kindergarten program.  The rewards are invaluable!

Night Before Christmas Storytime

Pajama party after hours at the library!  The whole family is welcome.  We have crafts, snacks, storytime, and even a visit from Santa!  Call the library for more information. 918-358-2676

Read To Some Bunny

Do you have a reluctant reader? Does your child struggle with reading? We want to help!  During the school year, your child can come to the library every other Monday afternoon and read to a well-behaved bunny rabbit. But you must make an appointment as space is limited. From 4:00 – 5:00 pm, each child will have a 15 minute time slot to read to (and pet) their furry friend. These bunnies are happy to listen to your child as they improve their reading skills!  To make an appointment or for more information, call 918-358-2676.


Come build LEGO creations at the library!  We meet every other Wednesday afternoon from 4:00 – 5:30.  Ages 5 and up are welcome.  Ages 8 and under need to bring an adult helper.  Call the library for specific dates and times. 918-358-2676

Summer Reading Program

Every summer, the library hosts fun-filled programs with reading and activities for children, teens, and adults. The programs follow a theme and every year is different and new. Join us this summer for more reading fun!
