Why Saturday Storytime?

Do you work all week long? Storytimes are held every week during the day, so working parents cannot attend. We don't want you to miss out on an opportunity to bond with your child over books.

About a year ago, we started holding storytimes at night once a week on Mondays from 7-8. Budget cuts led to staff hours being cut, so we went down to every other week on Monday night. Unfortunately, it made it difficult for parents to come each time.

For this session, we decided to try Family Storytimes once a month on Saturday morning. So far, the attendance has been low, but we are hoping for more interest. If you have never come to a storytime before, this program is for you!

Meet other parents with children the same age as yours! The library is a great meeting place. Don't let this opportunity pass you by, because it may not be offered again. Spread the word about Saturday Storytimes!!!

Spring into Spring!

The weather outside may still be cold, but the librarians at KHCPL are looking forward to blue skies. With that in mind our storytime session will be about all things Spring. Join us this week for stories in the garden. Then, make a craft to go in your own backyard.

Week 1: Garden
Week 2: Lambs
Week 3: Bears
Week 4: All Things Fluffy
Week 5: Rain

Remember to sign up at the Reference Desk for the Wednesday storytimes. All ages are welcome Thursday mornings, and babies and toddlers come for the 11 a.m. slot.
