About Storytime

We are so glad that you and your child are spending time at the Kingsport Public Library! We realize that there are many activities available for preschoolers these days, and we appreciate that you have chosen to spend Tuesday or Thursday mornings with us. The staff works very hard to provide quality programming for your children, and your cooperation and assistance in the following ways will make the storytime experience more enjoyable for your child and other participants:

  • Please be on time.
  • Please refrain from talking during storytime.
  • Please step outside the room if your child is too restless to participate.
  • Please plan to check out library books each week so that you can extend the storytime experience at home! The staff is always happy to recommend or help you locate materials.

Preschool storytime is planned for children between the ages of 3 and 5, accompanied by their parents or caregivers. Time for Two’s is planned for children between 24 and 36 months. Preschools and daycares may schedule a group program by calling the
Youth Services Department @ (423) 229-9366.
