About Storytime Programs

Family Storytime: All ages are invited to listen to stories, sing songs and participate; a perfect bonding time for the whole family.

Play & Learn / Play, Learn, Grow

Pre-School children will enjoy learning while they play, create and explore together. Activities include toys, games, arts & crafts, simple science experiments, coding, music, stories and more. (Play & Learn at the South Irving and Valley Ranch libraries sponsored by the YMCA.)

Baby Bookworms Storytime: A lap-sit storytime with plenty of gentle activities including songs and fingerplays that build early literacy skills for babies.

1, 2, Me & You: Too old for Bookworms, but not quite ready for Toddler Time? This program is designed to bridge that gap, and is perfect for one and two year olds. Be prepared to move! This storytime features large motor skills that will keep young minds and bodies occupied and includes stories and songs to engage and encourage the love of books and the library.

Toddler Storytime: Perfect for children who can sit still and listen for around 20 minutes, this interactive storytime includes stories, songs and fingerplays.

Preschool Storytime : Stories, songs, puppet shows and crafts for children who are becoming independent of a parent's attention.
