For families with young children

Join us every Saturday morning at Aurora Hills Branch Library for a Storytime or a Kids' Craft Program.

Stop in for Stories is for children ages 0-7 and an accompanying adult. This fun and interactive program combines activities such as read-aloud stories, songs, rhymes, fingerplays, and flannel boards and introduces children to listening skills, picture books, the library, and the joy of reading. Each Kids' Craft Program Saturday children can make a different craft out of materials provided by the library.

Location: Weather permitting, storytime will take place outdoors in the park, in the grassy area on the far side of the water play space. The drop-in craft programs will be in the Eads Room from 10:30 - 12:00. Storytime programs are moved indoors in the event of inclement weather.

No registration required. Craft supplies are limited. Attendance is first-come, first-served until event capacity is reached.
