Story Times



Babygarten Story Time

Suggested for children ages 0-2.

** Due to staff shortage, this program is a taking a break for the time being.
We will let you know when it resumes! Thank you!

We welcome parents and caregivers of infants and toddlers to come sing songs, and popular nursery rhymes, together! A simple story geared towards the children's age group will be read aloud. Physical interaction is extremely important in the early stages of child development, and this story time not only encourages adult/child interaction, but also builds the healthy habit of reading aloud to your child. Due to the short attention spans of this young age group, this story time will last about 20 minutes, with time for caregivers to socialize together afterwards while children play with toys that are provided.

Early Learning Journeys

Early Learning Journeys Story Time

Suggested for children ages 3-5.

This program will be available virtually every week on Tuesday via the Library's closed Facebook group:
Longview Public Library Online Programs and Events.
Videos will remain available for viewing for as long as publishers allow or you can watch live at 10:30AM on Tuesdays! 

Young children will enjoy singing along and interacting with Library staff while building their educational foundation! Story time opens with a time of singing beloved childhood songs and nursery rhymes, followed by a newly-published book being read aloud. Children will then enjoy activities and crafts geared towards helping them to imagine, create, and grow! This story time lasts about 30 minutes.
