Young children and family: learn and have fun together with your library!

Storytimes are lively interactive gatherings filled with stories, songs, rhymes, movement and social time for children from birth to kindergarten and their grown-ups. Research shows these language-rich activities help young children develop the skills they’ll need as they grow into learning to read.

Eugene Public Library's storytimes are designed to include talking, singing, reading, writing and playing. These are the five proven practices recommended by Every Child Ready to Read, a program of the Public Library Association and the Association for Library Service to Children.
