Storytimes

Storytime at the Library

Storytimes are programs for children ages 6 months through 5 years. They are held at both the Franklin and Springboro libraries. Storytimes provide opportunities for children to engage with picture books, sing songs, and participate in activities that encourage a love of reading. Caregivers are required to stay with the children throughout the storytimes. Registration is not required. Click links below for more detailed description of various storytime offerings.
