Once Upon A Time: Kids Flock To Library
O story
The popular Storytime provides a mat for kids to sit on to listen to the stories as well as some chairs for the adults attending, offered each Wednesday morning at the Oakdale Library. Sarah Lawson/The Leader

The Oakdale Library hosted an in-person, on-site storytime session, resuming on Wednesday, April 6 following a long pause due to the pandemic and indoor gathering limitations.

The program has opened back up, with children from birth to age six invited in to enjoy the 30-minute session that includes the reading of books, singing of songs and other fun activities, along with a little warm-up dance to start off the program. Though geared primarily to preschoolers, older kids are still welcome, space permitting. A mat is set up in the community room at the library, along with several chairs set up for the adults attending with the youngsters.

At the in-person session this past week, program leader/library assistant Brent Lowe handled the storytelling duties, welcoming attendees back to the popular storytime program.

It will be hosted every Wednesday at 11:30 a.m. in the Oakdale Library, 151 S. First Ave., Oakdale.

They do ask that parents sign up beforehand through the website under the Events tab and then click on Storytime information. The calendar will have the highlighted days that it occurs and a link to sign up.
