Each Toddler Time is about 20 minutes long and concludes with a coloring activity. THis program is held in the Large Meeting Room, and does not require tickets.

Children in Preschooler Storytime are expected to sit or stand still, listen to the storyteller, and practice self-control for longer periods of time than required during Toddler Storytime. Stories are longer and activities are more complex. Children may practice their independence by attending Preschooler Storytime without their caregiver (caregiver must remain on the first floor of the library at all times). Preschool Storytime lasts about 30 minutes. Preschooler Storytime is held in the Children's Activity Room, and a ticket is required. Tickets are free and available at the Children's Reference Desk beginning 30 minutes before the start of each storytime session.
