Story time is not held during the summer. It begins again in September. Please enjoy our Summer Reading Program instead.
Story Time at the library is designed to build literacy skills in small children using books, music, puppetry and movement. Little ones learn to associate reading with play and fun! It’s never too early to “get your story on” at your public library.
Storytime is held during the school year.
At Main library, Baby & Toddler story time is held Mondays at 11 a.m., and Tuesdays at 10:00 a.m. Preschool story time is held Tuesdays and Wednesdays at 11:00 a.m.
Damascus branch library Story Time is held on the 1st and 3rd Thursday of the month at 11:00 a.m.
Glade Spring branch library Story Time is held on the 1st and 3rd Wednesdays of each month at 11:00 a.m.
Mendota branch library Story Time is held every other Wednesday at 10:30 a.m.
Check the Kids & Teens Events calendar on this page for more details about Story Time at the branches, or call your branch library and ask about Story Time.
