Weekly Story Times

The South Portland Public Library offers story times at both the Main and Branch locations. Below is the schedule of our weekly regular story times.

Flash Story Time

Children of all ages are invited to stop by the Branch between 2 p.m. and 4 p.m. for a drop-in style story time in a fun and cozy setting. Stay for a song and a few stories, or longer if you like. Bring the whole family, and some friends too! For more information, contact the Branch Library at 775-1835.  Every Sunday from 2:00- 4:00 p.m. at the Branch Library.

Toddle Town

A lively literacy time for children ages 1 to 3 years old.  Children and their adults will have fun while learning songs, rhymes, and bounces.  Of course, children will also learn language through listening to appropriate and enjoyable stories for this age group.   From Spring through Fall, weather permitting, story times will be outside on the lawn!  Bring sunscreen and hats as needed.  Blankets will be provided, but feel free to bring your own. Every Wednesday at 10:30 a.m. at the Main Library.

Book Bambinos

Bring your littlest ones to begin their journey of literacy!  Children from birth to 18 months old will learn language through fun finger plays, rhymes, bounces, and books appropriate for this age group.  Book Bambinos even has a weekly “book group” in which, halfway through the session, we read a board book together out loud.  Each child is loaned a copy of the month’s title that they can explore as Miss Kim and the adults read the story.

From Spring through Fall, weather permitting, story times will be outside on the lawn!  Bring sunscreen and hats as needed.  Blankets will be provided, but feel free to bring your own.  Book Bambinos takes place every Thursday at 10:30 a.m. at the Main Library.

Starlight Stories

Jump in your jammies and join us for Starlight Stories, our evening story time! Wind down the day with fun songs and stories for all ages. From Spring through Fall, weather permitting, story times will be outside on the lawn!  Bring bug spray and warm clothing as needed.  Blankets will be provided, but feel free to bring your own if you like (and your teddy bear, too!). Starlight Stories takes place on Thursdays at 6:30 p.m. at the Main Library.

Letter Zoo

A fun story time for preschoolers ages 3 to 5 years old.  Children and their adults will do gentle stretches, listen to stories, and sing songs!  From Spring through Fall, weather permitting, story times will be outside on the lawn!  Bring sunscreen and hats as needed.  Blankets will be provided, but feel free to bring your own.  Letter Zoo takes place every Friday at 10:30 a.m. at the Main Library.
