storytimes

Regularly scheduled storytimes at the Grants Pass branch include the following:

  • K9 Reading Buddies: 3–4 pm every Tuesday
    Developed to provide a non-intimidating environment for budding readers to explore reading out loud, each week for K9 Reading Buddies the library comes alive with furry friends waiting to hear a good book.
  • Morning storytime and craft:
    11:30 am–noon every Wednesday

    All ages are welcome to join this weekly themed storytime and craft.
  • Baby Rhyme Time: 11 am–noon every Thursday
    This weekly early learning play group is for children two and under and their parents.
  • Secret Hush-Hush Hour (SHHH!): 4–5 pm the last Thursday of each month
    The library will drop hints and teasers on social media and in the newsletter during the weeks leading up to this monthly hush-hush classified super-secret mystery program—can you guess what we’ll be doing?
    Clues for the November 29 program:
    I am a place where you can pretend to live someone else’s life. Where am I?
    I make stories come to life.
    I have a crew, but no captain or vessel. What am I?
  • First Steps: 10:30–11 am every Friday
    This weekly lap-sit storytime session focuses on what new parents can do to help young children become aware and comfortable with books and language. Activities combine storytime, nursery rhymes, finger plays, songs, and dancing with learning and fun.
  • LEGO Club: 2–4 pm the first Saturday of each month
    Families are invited to drop-in to the bookstore to build and play.
