Storytimes are offered at various times throughout the year. Space is limited, so registration is required.  Typically, registration will begin approximately 2 weeks prior to the start of storytimes and will be announced in our newsletter and online.

General Information

  • Storytimes include stories, songs, crafts, and more!
  • Please arrive before the storytime is scheduled to begin. Late arrivals are very distracting to little ones.
  • Please take time before or after storytime to select books to take home with you. We recommend spending at least 20 minutes a day reading to your child. We have a wonderful collection of sturdy board books, picture books, and other age-appropriate materials as well as parenting books. We are always glad to suggest books.
  • Please advise us of any food allergies your child may have as we do have occasional treats.
  • If the Urbana City Schools delay or cancel, storytimes will also be cancelled.
