Story Times

Story Time Descriptions

Baby Butterflies: A 20 minute story time for our youngest library visitors. Children ages 0-3 will enjoy some simple books as well as some 'get-up-and-go songs'. Caregivers are expected to join in and show their little guys how it's done! 

The 9:30 and 10:30 Baby Butterflies Story Times are held in the Butterfly Room, a cozy space for just right for babies and toddlers.
Since our space is limited, we ask that you register for these story times only if you are able to make your best effort to attend on a weekly basis.

If you are unable to register for these two sessions, you can attend our 11:30 drop-in session in the Jones Room. You'll get the same Baby Butterflies Story Time content in a bigger space where your little one can spread their wings.

Preschool Story Times: Drop in for some Story Time fun in the Children's Room of the Tufts Library or at one of our branches. Preschool Story Time is designed for children ages 3-5. Younger children who are ready to listen more complex stories and participate in the songs are also welcome to attend.  

Miss Susan's Volunteer Story Time:  Miss Susan will be presenting her special family Story Time each week at the Tufts Library throughout the year. Join her for music, dancing and some great stories. Families with children ages 0-5 are welcome to attend. Register online and you will receive a reminder email and notification if the program is not scheduled for a particular week.

Pajama Story Time:  Take the night off and let us read the bedtime stories. Shaun has some great songs and books to share. It's a perfect way to wrap up your day. This is a monthly Story Time. Register online if you would like to receive an email reminder.

Wiggles & Giggles Story Time:  Music, movement and fun stories in a predictable routine to engage kids that might have trouble sitting still for other story hours! Visual aids will help kids know what comes next. While everyone is welcome at this story time, it is designed especially for kids with sensory challenges.

Please note:

With the exception of Miss Susan's Volunteer Story Time, all other regular Story Times are on break and will resume the first full week in February 2018
