Storytimes and Reading at Home


Storytime with Ms. LisaBring the magic of storytimes into your home! While the Osceola Libraries are not hosting events in the building to help reduce the spread of COVID-19 (follow our Updates Page and social media for more information and details as the situation develops) we wanted to make sure all the kiddos still experienced the adventure and fun of storytime.

Watch your favorite storyteller do storytime like only they can on our YouTube Page! We have an entire playlist of storytime videos featuring all of our Youth staff and even author Peter Raymundo!

Storytime Friends & Takeouts

Each Storytime Friends episode has an accompanying Activity Pack in the same theme. Activity Packs include instructions to the featured craft or activity as well as some of the supplies needed. They are available for pickup at all branches the week prior to its paired episode of Storytime Friends, but you can also download just the flyer PDF below. Watch a new episode of Storytime Friends LIVE every Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday at 11am on Zoom!
