Indoor Storytimes for Winter

Winter is coming! As the weather gets colder, storytimes must move inside. We’ll continue to run our weekly storytimes on Tuesdays, Wednesdays, and Thursdays at 10:30 AM, but there will be a few changes.

Starting the week of November 29, the following guidelines will be in place for all storytimes:

  • Space is limited and registration is recommended. Registration for each storytime will open two weeks before the storytime (for example, registration opens on Tuesday, November 16, for the Wiggleworms session being held on Tuesday, November 30). 

  • You must complete registration each week for each child attending storytime. Due to space constraints, no more than one adult may accompany a child.

  • Storytimes will be held in the second floor Conference Room. Unregistered walk-ins will be seated in the first floor Presentation Commons to experience a simulcast storytime on the big screen. Both rooms will be closed when capacity is reached.

  • Please arrive on time. Queset House doors will open at 10:20 and will be locked after 10:40 AM.

  • Masks are required in the Queset House for all individuals ages 2 and up.

  • If you have a storytime kit from our summer and fall sessions, plan to bring it with you. Some sessions may use scarves or shakers! 

Register for a session under the specific date you plan to attend. Find out more about WigglewormsBabytime, or Family Storytime on our Storytime page.

Please contact with any questions or concerns, or to inquire about a waiting list.

Indoor Storytime procedures may change as conditions change. If you are not ready to join us for indoor storytimes, stay tuned to this blog for links and videos to other early literacy resources.
