Each Toddler Time is about 20 minutes long and concludes with a coloring activity. This program takes place in the Lobby Meeting Room and does not require a ticket or registration.

Children in Preschooler Storytime are expected to sit or stand still, listen to the storyteller, and practice self-control for longer periods of time than required during Toddler Storytime. Stories are longer and activities are more complex. Children may practice their independence by attending Preschooler Storytime without their caregiver (caregiver must remain on the first floor of the library at all times). Preschool Storytime lasts about 30 minutes. This program takes place in the Lobby Meeting Room and does not require a ticket or registration.
