Library story times are an introduction to the wonderful world of books and reading! We hope you continue the fun at home by reading together, telling stories, singing songs! Use what you learn in story time to make "story time" at home a fun & special time! And don't forget to make checking out books a part of your library experience!

Pre-K Klub

Once a month

@ 9:30-10:15 am

For preschoolers in a pre-kindergarten program

Pre-K Klub is geared toward area preschoolers currently enrolled in a Portage school district pre-kindergarten program (Head Start, The Little School, Alphabet Express, St. John's/St. Mary's) and homeschoolers but who do not attend weekly preschool story times at the library. Klub meets once a month and includes Mrs. Foster reading a classic children's picture book and then using "STEM" (science, technology, engineering, math) principles to further the lesson. Kids have a lot of "hands-on" fun with experiments, math concepts, and more.
