Phoenix Public Library Storytimes

We visited the Mesquite branch of the Phoenix Library this weekend (over by Paradise Valley Mall) and I was reminded again that they have an excellent story time for kids. Plus, it’s free! Story times are held year-round in Phoenix except all locations take a holiday in December. You’ll want to visit phoenixpubliclibrary.org/kids for any cancellations or closures, or for information about other locations.

What’s it about? Storytimes are about sharing books, songs, stories, and activitites that are just right for the age of your child. A parent must attend with your children. Check your local Phoenix library for kid events. Have fun!
