Join us for stories, songs, crafts, and fun at our Fall Storytimes! Storytimes are designed for children ages 0-5, along with their adults. We will listen to stories, dance to songs, and make crafts to take home, plus other fun activities!

We have some special events to look out for with our scheduled storytimes. Our first scheduled storytime is actually an art event designed for young children, involving coloring, the alphabet, and zebras! Called Arthur’s Zar’s Zebras, this crafty event should be a great start to our Fall children’s events schedule!

We are also trying our first ever outdoor storytimes in September 2018. Instead of having storytime in the Virginia Public Library Auditorium, we will be meeting at Olcott Park by the Italian American Building. Children’s Librarian Stephanie will bring the books and craft supplies, but we recommend you bring something comfy to sit on, like a lawn chair or blanket! If there is rain or other bad weather we will meet in the library auditorium instead.

We have some special seasonal storytimes to look forward to as well, like the storytime before Halloween where children are encouraged (but not required) to wear costumes to the event, and the Turkey Storytime before Thanksgiving. These special storytimes often include bonus crafts to take home, and even snacks!

If you have questions about storytime, let us know! Talk to us in the Children’s Room, or give us a call at 218-748-7525. If you want to see more storytime dates scroll down this page, or click on the image below to see our library events calendar.
