Preschool Story Time

No Story Time Wednesday, January 5, 2022, Wednesday, January 12, 2022  & Friday, January 28, 2022. The library will be short staffed these days. Sorry for the inconvenience!

Story time begins at 10:30 am on Wednesday and Friday mornings during the months September through May. The same program is offered on Wednesday 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.

Summer Learning Program 2022

The annual children’s Summer Learning Program will resume in June 2022!


Book-a-Lunch will return in July 2022! 

Join us Wednesdays during July and August at 11:00 a.m. on the grass across from Veterans Memorial Park (between Langford Ave. & HWY 56) for Book-A-Lunch!  Kids are encouraged to bring blankets, lawn chairs, and/or a snack while we read a few children’s books in the park. All children under age 7 should be accompanied by an adult, teen caregiver or older sibling. Book-a-Lunch 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.

Book-a-Lunch is a free event recommended for ages birth through age 10.

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.
