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!

Parents/adult caregivers are required to attend programs with their children.  If special accommodations are needed to attend any Portage Public Library Youth Services programs, please call 742-4959 ext. 211 two weeks in advance.

Preschool Story Time summer sessions are on Wednesdays @ 10:00 a.m.  and will begin June 11. Each week (for 5 weeks) we'll explore a different "science" topic with stories, songs, activities, crafts, movement, and a whole lot more! We encourage families to register for the Summer Library Program and make a date to attend summer story time on Wednesday mornings!  Registration is required.  Registration begins June 4th.  There will be online registration.  No early registration.
