Family Storytime in the Garden

Family Storytime is perfect for preschoolers but fun for the whole family! This group will continue to meet in the Queset Garden, where you can learn (or re-learn!) favorite songs & rhymes and enjoy a few stories each week. This program meets every Thursday at 10:30 AM with Miss Alyisha and runs for about 30 minutes.

There is no Family Storytime on the first Thursday of each month. Check out a virtual program below, or see if your child is the right age for Toddler Learn & Play!

In order to reduce the sharing of materials, each child will receive a Storytime Kit while supplies last. 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! If you have a kit from summer storytime sessions, please bring it to each storytime.

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

Masks and social distancing are encouraged.

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!
