Young children and family: join us to learn and have fun together with stories, songs, and more! We're hosting in-person storytimes indoors in a variety of locations around town. Some storytimes require pre-registration. In-person storytime calendar and sign-ups.
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.
