Ongoing Programs


Throughout the pandemic, we are offering a variety of virtual storytime programs to help your child(ren) foster a love of reading and bolster their early literacy skills. We are excited to incrementally return to in-person storytimes as well! All of our storytimes are geared for children ages 0-5. Join us for any (or all!) of our storytime programs. Check out our events calendar for more information.

Storytime on Zoom

This storytime runs on Saturdays at 10:30 AM on Zoom. Prepare to be engaged, as this storytime encourages you to sing, laugh, and move with us! This storytime will never be recorded or saved afterward, both for your privacy and publishers’ permissions. Registration is required.  Read more about and register for our weekly Zoom storytimes here.

World Language Storytimes

The Library is pleased to partner with dedicated community members to offer storytimes in multiple languages. All of our world language storytimes are conducted fully in their designated language. The Library currently offers storytimes in Japanese and Taiwanese, both of which are occurring virtually on Zoom. You can read more about these programs and how to register on our events calendar.

Early Literacy Calendars

Every month, we put together a calendar full of ideas and activities to help practice early literacy skills with your little ones. Each week is focused on a different theme and includes suggestions of how to Sing, Talk, Read, Write, and Play together to get your child(ren) ready to read! There is also a weekly book recommendation, which is always available physically and digitally through the Library. 

Library To-Go Kits

Every month, new Library To-Go Kits are made available for kids, tweens, teens, and adults. Craft, build, cook, and de-stress with the help of these unique kits! Find out more about To-Go Kits and how to get them here.
