Storytimes

Updated March 26, 2021

Storytimes are lively interactive gatherings filled with stories, songs, rhymes, movement, and social time for children from birth to six. Research shows that 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 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. 


We look forward to offering in-person storytimes again as soon as possible. In the meantime, we hope you will try our Family Storytime Online on Facebook Live (no account or log in needed). Join us live on Tuesdays at 11:00 a.m. or watch recordings of previous storytimes anytime.
