DKPL Story Times are moving back inside the library this week! We’ve got a new schedule and some exciting new programs we think you will love!

Our Story Time Programs

Book Babies

suggested age: 0-24 months

A fun, engaging story time focused on our youngest friends. Quick stories, songs, finger plays and other fun, along with opportunities to learn about early literacy practices that work just as well at home!

Pre-COVID Book Babies in the Storytime & Activity Room

Preschool Story Time

suggested age: 3-5 years

At the same time as Book Babies to provide older siblings with an age appropriate activity of their own while caregivers attend the program with babies. This story time will have a different theme each week, with stories, time for discussion about the theme, songs and fun, and more. Every Preschool Story Time in a given week follows the same program, so no need to attend more than one (unless it was so great you’re ready for a repeat!).

Pre-COVID Preschool Story Time (formerly Little Learners or Book Buddies) just outside the Storytime & Activity Room

On Our Own Storytime

suggested age: 3-5 years

This new story time follows the same program as our other Preschool Story Times, but allows caregivers the option to drop off children at the Story and Activity Room. Caregivers are then free to explore the rest of the children’s department, play with younger children in the Tree Room, or socialize with others outside the room. Story Time lasts 30 minutes.

Musical Mornings

suggested age: up to 5 years

Music Therapist Angie Carter presents a program for babies, toddlers, and preschoolers featuring singing, dancing, instruments, and fun.

Musical Mornings in the courtyard this summer. Now it will be back in the Storytime & Activity Room.

Toddler Time

suggested age: 18-36 months

A new story time that will be every other Friday opposite Musical Mornings. With shorter stories, songs, fun and games, and more to engage with younger minds and shorter attention spans!
