Family Storytime in the Garden

Due to today's wet weather, FAMILY STORYTIME IS CANCELED. Check out our storytime extender links at the bottom of this event listing, or come on in to the library to check out books for a DIY storytime. See you next week!

In May, Storytime will be moving outside full-time! Family Storytime will meet in the Queset Garden this month. No registration is required; all families are welcome to attend.

Family Storytime is perfect for preschoolers but fun for the whole family! Learn (or re-learn!) favorite songs & 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.

Please note: Storytime programs will be canceled if the weather does not allow us to meet in the Garden. If skies are cloudy and gray and you find yourself unsure about the day’s events, you can check the Family Storytime calendar event or visit the library's Facebook page for updates.

Please contact kids@amesfreelibrary.org with any questions or concerns.
