Storytimes To Go

Storytimes To Go are intended for day care providers or parents that want to create a simple storytime for their children. We currently have ten Storytime themes to choose from. Library staff will put the plan and five books that match the theme into a book bag for you to pick up at the library. There is a limit of one Storytime theme per request. Please allow 3-4 days for your request to be processed.

Grab & Go Book BundlesGrab & Go Book Bundles are here!

Each pre-made bundle of 3-5 books will help you to get in and out of the library quickly and leave with a great selection of books your kids will love!

We have some great ways to find storytimes, books, activities, and educational fun online on our Learning Links page!
