Youth Services - Children


Preschool Story Time on Thursdays (September-May):

Preschool story times are from 10:00 – 10:30 a.m. and 6:15-6:45 p.m. every Thursday in the Lied Scottsbluff Public Library meeting room.  Story time is geared primarily to children between 2 and 6 years of age.  However, because the rate of growth and development varies greatly, we encourage parents to determine their child’s readiness for story time.  No advance registration is necessary and there is no fee. 


Summer Reading Program (annually)

The Children’s Summer Reading Program is held annually in June and July for children from birth through 5th grade.  Each year, the library follows a national theme and creates innovative, educational and enlightening programs for children. 


LEGO Club (monthly)

LEGO Club is held on the last Monday of each month at 6:00 p.m. in the library meeting room.  This club is geared for children ages 4-11.  All children must be accompanied by a parent or adult.  Registration is not required and this is a free program for children. 


“100 Best Books” Reading Wall for Children

The “100 Best Books” reading wall for children is to encourage young readers to read some amazingly well-written children’s books, as well as serve as an incentive to promote literacy and reading to children.  Each reader who completes the “100 Best Books” reading list will receive either a “100 Best Books Champion Reader” bumper sticker or yard sign.


Special Events

The library hosts many special events for children, including but not limited to a special Halloween story time and an annual Christmas event.  “Like” us on Facebook for special event announcements.
