Storytimes

Storytime at Bexley Public Library is more than just a fun, family outing. It is an interactive, educational experience based on early-literacy research and best practices. We incorporate movement, singing, and play into our stories and activities to keep families engaged and solidify learning.

To determine what Storytime is right for your family, please check out the descriptions below as well as the library Calendar.  Fall Storytimes are held September 2 - November 19

Preschool Storytime
Mondays | 10:00-10:30 a.m.
NEW TIME! Preschoolers will have a ball with stories, dances, and songs, all while building vital early literacy skills.
