Children’s Storytimes at Oshtemo

Children from Birth to 5 Years

Librarians consider children's developmental stages when planning stories, fingerplays, songs, and craft activities. Siblings may attend, too.

Kalamazoo Public Library offers many special events for kids. Check the Kids' Calendar for all upcoming programs.

All programs are free of charge.
