Winter/Spring Preschool Story Time

Enjoy stories, craft, song, and other fun!

Join us for in-person Preschool Story Time at the Decatur Public Library! We'll share fun stories around a theme, songs, and a craft or activity. Story Time meets in the Children's Section of the library on the second floor.

Story time is geared to preschoolers 3-5 years old. Other siblings are welcome. Day care providers are also welcome to bring their preschoolers. (If you're a day care provider or babysitter and want to bring a group of kids, call us at 217-424-2900 ext. 5 to let us know in advance so we'll be sure to have enough craft supplies.)

BabyTALK Time meets at the same time as the Thursday story times in the Children's Auditorium for those 3 and under with a caregiver.

The dates are:

  • Thursday, February 9, 10 a.m. -- We're making valentine's cards, and every child who attends will get a scratch 'n' sniff candy heart bookmark!
  • Saturday, February 11, 1 p.m. -- We're making valentine's cards, and every child who attends will get a scratch 'n' sniff candy heart bookmark!
  • Thursday, March 9, 10 a.m. -- Spring Things!
  • Thursday, April 6, 10 a.m. -- With an Easter Egg Hunt!
  • Saturday, April 8, 1 p.m. -- With an Easter Egg Hunt!

No registration required -- just come and join in the fun!
