Story Times

The Massillon Public Library Children’s Department invites families to their next session of story times beginning June 1 and running through July 27 in the Main library Auditorium.

Budding Bookworms:
Wednesdays from 10:15-10:45am
This story time features lively tales and participatory activities for children ages 2 to 5 years.

Discovery Time:
Thursdays from 10:15-10:35am
This story time is for children ages 0 to 24 months and includes a short playtime at the end of each session.

These Story Times reflect the early literacy initiative, Every Child Ready to Read, offering parents many fun and useful suggestions to help their children gain early skills that lead to reading.

Families are also invited to attend these special summer Story Time sessions:

Sensory-Friendly Story Times
Main Library Auditorium
June 17 and July 15 from 10:15am – 10:45am
This Story Time is designed for children who enjoy structured activities and may need more sensory, social, or emotional support.

Attack of the Bookworms
June 1 at 11:00am at the Askren Branch
What happens when bookworms go bad? It’s up to you to save the day with the help of Mr. Dennis and a little magic, puppetry, music, and more!

“I Love You With All of My Hearts”
Main Library Auditorium
June 30 from 10:30am – 11:30am
Animals have distinctive traits, like long or short noses, and different-shaped feet. But one thing is the same: love. How does an octopus love? With all three of its hearts, of course! Join us for an interactive reading of Lindsay Bonilla’s book “I Love You With All of My Hearts.” 

No registration is required for Story Times. Children attending these free programs must be accompanied by an adult.
