Resources for Children

Storytimes, homework help, book recommendations, programs, and more for kids from birth to 12.

Story Time

Talk, sing, read, write and play!  Get your children ready to read by attending early literacy storytimes – we read stories, sing, use puppets and flannel boards to develop early literacy skills and instill the love of reading.  Children of all ages and their caregivers are welcome.

Tuesdays at 10:30 A.M.

If you have any questions, please call the library at 651-275-4416


The Metropolitan Library Service Agency, or MELSA, launched a pilot program, smARTpass,  that allows Twin Cities library users to receive free and discounted tickets to select museums and theaters in the area.

The same way you enlarge your world through attending programs and classes at your library and checking out a wide range of resources, you are now invited to broaden your cultural experiences beyond the library’s walls through smARTpass, an arts access website offering free and discount admissions to a variety of Twin Cities cultural destinations.
