Family Storytime in the Garden

Family Storytime is perfect for preschoolers but fun for the whole family! In the setting of our lovely Queset Garden*, learn (or re-learn!) favorite songs and rhymes and enjoy a few stories each week. This program meets every Thursday at 10:30 a.m. with Miss Alyisha and runs for about 30 minutes.

In order to reduce the sharing of materials, each child will receive a Storytime Kit. This will be yours to keep but be sure to bring it back to each storytime session so you have your own materials to join in with! One kit will be available per child for the entire summer.

Masks and social distancing are required. Check the library's Quick Visits page to check current requirements. 

*In case of inclement weather, please check this event page or the library’s Facebook page for updates. Storytimes will be canceled if weather does not allow us to meet in the Garden.


If once a week isn't enough, check out the videos in our Family Storytime blog to watch our summer 2020 Family Storytime sessions anytime you want! You can also extend the fun with these links to free online storybooks that your family will love!
