Storytimes: See What’s New!

Arapahoe Libraries is offering new and expanded storytime opportunities. Come see what's new!

Expanded Storytimes

Arapahoe Libraries features an expanded storytime line-up that includes several new Baby Storytimes, Toddler Storytimes and Family Storytimes at a library near you. There are now more than 40 in-person storytimes each week at Arapahoe Libraries.

If your child experiences anxiety or feels overwhelmed in a public space, try a Sensory Support Kit, now available for in-library use at select library locations. 

There are always virtual storytime options too! The prerecorded Storytime At Home, opens a new window videos can be found on the ALD LIVE YouTube channel, opens a new window. Zoom opportunities include weekly Saturday morning Baby Storytime on Zoom, and on the third Thursday evening of each month join us for an all-ages family storytime Party on Zoom with a unique fun theme each month. 

Learning through Play

Children learn best through play, so all Arapahoe Libraries storytimes now feature Learning through Play, which is a short time set aside after every in-person storytime for open-ended play with specially selected toys and materials that support literacy and development. 

Literacy Spots

Look for scheduled Literacy Spot drop-in opportunities to play and learn with storytime specialists outside of storytime! The specialists will offer book and event recommendations and quick, fun literacy-building activities to try.
