Toddler Storytime introduces children to books with simple language and predictable plots. This program also introduces toddlers to storytime manners by helping them build listening skills and practice the self-control needed to be a good audience. Toddler Time is most appropriate for children that are not yet ready to sit for long periods of time and listen to more complex stories (about 18 months to 3 years). 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.
For more information please call the Children's Reference Desk at 936-442-7727 ext 6363.

Preschooler Storytime provides a place for children to practice the storytime manners they have learned in Toddler Time. 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 Large Meeting Room, so tickets are not required. 


For more information please call the Children's Reference Desk at 936-442-7727 ext 6363.
