Storytime in the Park

Mondays, Tuesdays & Wednesdays at 10:30 a.m. | Register online for this program

Mondays at 10:30AM  •  Koenig Field, Edgewood
Tuesdays at 10:30AM  •  Lions Park, Wilkins Township
Thursdays at 10:30AM  •  Westinghouse Lodge, Forest Hills

Because of current social distancing guidelines and our new outdoor setting, storytime will look and feel a little different than before. Please plan to:

  • Register your family ahead of time, as spaces are limited
  • Register with the name on your library card
  • Attend no more than one storytime a week  
  • Bring a picnic blanket or towel(s) for your family to sit on
  • Wear masks or face coverings for everyone 3 years old and up
  • Come a few minutes early to get situated
  • Use the bathroom before you come (bathroom facilities at most parks will not be available)

Your friendly neighborhood librarians will:

  • Have a bag just for your family with song lyrics, props, and copies of the books we read already checked out to your library card
  • Set up markers to help families spread out
  • Use a speaker and microphone so that families can hear even when spread out
  • Have hand sanitizer available
  • Notify families via email if storytime is canceled or moved under shelters for inclement weather

Have questions about ADA accommodations, library cards, or safety measures? Email for help!
