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.  Winter Storytimes are held January 6 through March 13.

Baby Storytime - Tuesdays @ 10 am

Caregivers and babies alike will love this interactive lapsit program, which features baby-focused stories, songs, and rhymes. Reading, talking, and singing with your baby will build a strong foundation for early learning and will help your baby understand his or her world.

Toddler Storytime - Tuesdays @ 11 am

We weave stories, songs, rhymes, and play activities together to create an engaging and educational experience specific to toddler’s needs. Caregivers are encouraged to participate and bring these fun, early literacy ideas home.

Rhyme Time - Wednesdays @ 10 am

Interactive rhymes and basic ASL signs will have you and your child moving and learning together. Designed for babies and toddlers, Rhyme Time focuses on building phonological awareness and expanding vocabulary through repetition of rhymes and motions.

Preschool Storytime - Thursdays @ 10 am & 2 pm

Preschoolers will have a ball with stories, dances, and songs all while building vital early literacy skills. Preschool Storytime also helps children develop many social skills, such as self-regulation and peer interaction, which are needed to succeed in school.

Pajama Storytime - December 11 / January 15 / February 12 @ 7pm

Snuggle up and listen to some wonderful books before bedtime. This special, evening program is offered once a month for children of all ages and is an enriching way for the whole family to end the day. Your child is welcome to bring a stuffed animal and wear pajamas to make the occasion even more fun.

Play Everyday! - December 3 / January 7 / February 14 @ 11:15 am

Join us after Toddler Storytime on the first Tuesday of each month to explore and learn through play! Parents will leave with fresh ideas for incorporating play into everyday activities or for using everyday materials to promote purposeful play. Please, dress for mess.

Stay and Play - January 18 / February 15 @ 10 am

Don’t let the cold keep you cooped up at home! Come to the library for a short storytime and lots of indoor play the third Saturday of each month, December through February. Stay and Play is a great way to meet new families or meet-up with old friends.
