Preschool Story Time

Story time begins at 10:30 am on Thursday and Friday mornings during the months September through May. The same program is offered on Thursday and Friday of the same week. Story time lasts approximately 45 minutes. During this time children will listen to two or three books, sing songs, participate in activities, and create a craft revolving around a specific weekly theme.

Our story time programs are designed to teach preschoolers creative expression, social skills, listening and comprehension skills, the basics of reading through number and letter recognition, and aid in vocabulary building and cognitive development. This program is designed for children age 2 through Kindergarten though all children are welcome to attend with an adult. Daycares are also welcome. Story time is a free program.

The Summer Learning Program will be back in 2023! 

Lunch Bunch 

Lunch Bunch will return in July 2023!

Join us most Wednesdays during July and August at 11:00 a.m. on the grass at First Evangelical Lutheran Church (corner of Forest Street & 3rd Street) for Lunch Bunch, a 30 minute outside Story Time! Listen to a story or two, and join in on an activity! All ages are welcome but this program is geared toward children ages 2 to 10 years old. Lunch Bunch will be held inside the library in case of inclement weather. Follow our Facebook page HERE for updates if we will meet inside on a particular day.

Adult Book Group

We have one adult book group that meets at the library.  The book group meets the last Monday of the month at 1:30 pm. New members are always welcome.

Book Sales

The annual book sale is held each year in August during Kenyon’s Rose Fest celebration. The sale is located in the City of Kenyon Council Chambers, which is in the same building as the library.  The remaining materials that do not sell in the annual book sale are moved into the library for our in-house book sale that continues through mid-November. Please contact the library if you would like more information about the book sale.
