Virtual Storytimes

Early Literacy: Everything a child knows about reading and writing before they learn to read and write

Grow A Reader storytimes are designed to develop early literacy skills through Talking & Listening, Singing & Rhyming, Reading & Sharing, Writing & Creating, and Playing & Imagining. Your child's early literacy journey will include picture books, music, fingerplays, movement activities, literacy tips, and more. 

All in-person events (including Storytimes) at the Mid-Continent Public Library branches have been postponed until further notice to safeguard public health. Follow this link for more information.
