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!

Read To Some Bunny!

Is your child a reluctant reader?  Do they need ‘some bunny’ to encourage them?  Now, your child can practice reading to a well-behaved bunny rabbit at the library.  Bunnies visit in the fall and spring.  Call the library to make an appointment or for more information.  918-358-2676
