Family Storytime at Queset House

Family Storytime is perfect for preschoolers but fun for the whole family! This group will meet inside the Queset House through the winter. Learn (or re-learn!) favorite songs & rhymes and enjoy a few stories each week. This program meets every Thursday at 10:30 AM and runs for about 30 minutes.

Space is limited and registration is recommended. Registrants will participate in the second floor Presentation Room with Miss Alyisha. 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. 

Register below.  Registration will open two weeks before the first storytime of the month. You will be registered for that storytime for the entire month. Please email us (below) if you will not be able to attend a session, or if you have to cancel your registration for the month. You must complete registration for each child attending storytime. Due to space constraints, no more than one adult may accompany a child.

Masks are required in the Queset House for all individuals ages 2 and up. Please contact kids@amesfreelibrary.org with any questions or concerns, or to inquire about a waiting list.

f you aren't ready for indoor storytimes yet, learn some of our favorite storytime songs & rhymes with Miss Jess on our Storytime Snippets video playlist.  You can also check out the videos in our Family Storytime blog, or extend the fun with these links to free online storybooks that your family will love!
