Summer Story Time

Superhero Story Time

This year’s theme is A Universe of Stories. Our Story Time schedule includes a magician, balloon artists, the Louisville Astronomical Society, the Recycle ladies, and more. We’re kicking off with a Harry Potter Party, including a fun game of Quidditch, and we’ll end the season with a comic book convention. Your kids can dress up as their favorite superhero and run an obstacle course to test their skills!

Every Wednesday at 1 pm starting on June 5, Story Time will include a fun book read by the librarian, entertainment or other activities, a craft for children to make and take home, and a fun snack.

The full summer schedule can be found here.

You must pre-register your children for Summer Storytime by stopping by the library or calling the librarian at 812-739-4092. Pre-registration helps us plan our events better and ensures that every child has access to craft materials and snacks.

Please join us for a fun and imaginative summer!
