Let's Get Ready to Learn!


Do you care for a child between 3 months and 5 years of age? Every week the four Irving Public Library locations host 16 storytime programs to help you prepare them for learning and eventually their first day of school.

Storytime programs are more than just stories. Our staff also use music, movement and plenty of interaction to get young brains growing while learning words. We offer programs by development stage and for the whole family. We also host monthly programs in English and Spanish. Here's the latest Storytime line up:

Which Storytime is best for my child?

Family Storytime: All ages are invited to listen to stories, sing songs and participate; a perfect bonding time for the whole family.

Play & Learn: Families, friends and neighbors and their children are invited to come play, create, and explore together. Play & Learn helps children improve their cognitive skills and develop positive relationship skills through playful activities. (Sponsored by the YMCA)

Baby Bookworms: Ages 3 to 18 months and caregivers enjoy a lapsit storytime with plenty of gentle activities including songs and fingerplays that build early literacy skills for babies.

1, 2, Me & You: Too old for Bookworms, but not quite ready for Toddler Time? This program is designed to bridge that gap, and is perfect for one and two year olds. Be prepared to move! This storytime features large motor skills that will keep young minds and bodies occupied and includes stories and songs to engage and encourage the love of books and the library.

Toddler Storytime: Perfect for children who can sit still and listen for around 20 minutes, this interactive storytime includes stories, songs and fingerplays.

Preschool Storytime: Stories, songs, puppet shows and crafts for children who are becoming independent of a parent's attention.
