Storytime in Awbrey Park on Saturdays

Young children and family:  learn and have fun together with books, songs, and more outdoors in Awbrey Park.

Storytimes are lively interactive gatherings filled with stories, songs, rhymes, movement and social time for young children and their grown-ups. Research shows these language-rich activities help develop the skills they’ll need as they grow into learning to read.

Eugene Public Library’s storytimes are designed to include talking, singing, reading, writing and playing. These are the five proven practices recommended by Every Child Ready to Read, a program of the Public Library Association and the Association for Library Service to Children.

10:15-10:45 the following Saturdays
Awbrey Park (River Road and Spring Creek Drive, 97404)
