All Digital Programs are available at our YouTube page--West Allis Public Library.
Storytime enhances early literacy skills by giving children the opportunity to hear and learn new words through repetition and context. Each session consists of age appropriate books, songs, and rhymes.
Previous storytimes are available to view.
Outdoor Summer Storytimes
Tuesdays, June 15 through July 27 at 1:00pm
Kids 5 and under and caregivers, join us outside the library for stories, songs, & rhymes. Registration is not required. Caregivers must stay with children for the duration of the program. In the event of inclement weather, a new digital storytime will be available on the Library's YouTube page.
Summer Family Programs
These programs are all planned to take place outdoors, on the grassy area on the south side of the parking lot. Please bring your own blankets to sit on. Those with chairs will be asked to sit in the back to avoid obstructing the views of others. Masks and social distancing are encouraged.
In the event of inclement weather, programs will be moved to a digital format and available to view on our Facebook page—West Allis Public Library Children’s Services.
All three program times are identical.
