Storytime

Teddy Bear Time: The third Tuesday evening of the month at 7:00pm.

Wear your pjs, grab your favorite teddy bear and bring your blankie for an evening storytime full of bedtime stories, teddy bear songs and rhymes to help wind down the day. Program is for all ages.

Storytime: Every Wednesday morning at 10:00am.

This program (PDF) is intended for children ages 18 months to 5 years, but everyone is welcome to attend. Storytimes are a wonderful way to encourage a love of reading among children. Parents also benefit from storytimes, as they learn new ways to share stories with their children. Many storytimes are interactive, using puppets, fingerplays, songs, crafts, or other activities that enhance a child's reading experience.

Special Programs

Special programs and events will be announced and publicized throughout the school year for children of all ages. Please visit our Facebook page, the city calendar or call the library at 903-654-4810 for additional information.
