Every Monday, 10:30 am until 11:30 am. It’s designed for children between the ages of 0 to 3 years old and their care givers. Toddler Time typically includes singing, one children’s story, a fingerplay, an easy craft related to the theme of the day, and perhaps a flannel board activity. This is the perfect space to introduce your young children to the fresh concepts of interacting with books. It is a safe and comfortable environment for learning library behavior. Emily McDonald, the library’s children and youth specialist, prepares and conducts Toddler Time.
A weekly science, technology, engineering, art, and math (STEAM) initiative at the Wimberley Library. For children ages 5-8. There is a limit of 25 children per club. There are no sign-ups before the club—children come in on a first-come, first-served basis. Every program is unique, exciting, and educational. Some of our past clubs have included:
Dinosaur fossil exploration
Pre-School Story Time
Every Friday, 10:30 a.m. until 11:30 a.m. It’s designed for children between the ages of 3 to 5 years old and their care givers. Story Time typically includes two children’s stories, a song and fingerplay, an easy craft related to the theme of the day, and perhaps a flannel board activity.
How do I know if my child is old enough to participate?
If your child has moved beyond looking at the pictures alone in a children’s book and can understand the story told in the words and pictures of a children’s book, your child is probably ready. Discuss story time with your child before you come. Let him or her know they are expected to sit and listen while the story is being read, but also there will be time to sing, make a craft, visit with friends, and select some books to check out. Stay close and enjoy the stories too.

What to do:
Our goal is to enhance the literacy skills of English language learners of all ages. The program will help improve English reading comprehension, grammar, vocabulary and much more.
