Our Storytime videos are posted online, so you can still join in at home!

Earlier Little Readers Theater videos are posted on  the library’s Facebook page and on our YouTube channel.

We still have some Storytime-To-Go kits available for in-library or curbside pickup! These kits are designed for toddlers and preschoolers and include books, activities, and crafts based around different subjects. We are currently circulating kits about dogs, cats, dinosaurs, trains, birds, princesses, butterflies, and architects.

Our most recent Little Readers Theater video was, How Rabbit Stole The Moon, based on the book by Louise Moeri, presented by Miss Wendy.

Earlier videos can be viewed on our Little Readers Theater Playlist on our YouTube channel.
