Learn and grow at Preschool Story Time

The Shawnee Public Library invites some of its youngest fans to its weekly Preschool Story Time programs, taking place at 4 p.m. each Wednesday in February. Dates for the events are Feb. 4, 11, 18 and 25.

Registration is not required to attend and activities are for ages 3 to 5 and their caregivers and will include books, rhymes, music, story boards and more.


Traditional tales take a new twist at special story time

A new favorite at the Shawnee Public Library is its “Fractured” Fairy and Folk Tale Friday, a story time with a special twist that starts at 4 p.m. Friday, Jan. 23.

Librarians will share a favorite well-known fairy or folk tale, and once they’ve shared the real version of the story, they then will present a “fractured” version of the same story, with some of the same idea but not quite the same result.

The day also will feature related games and crafts, and activities are suited to ages 5 to 11 and registration is not required to attend.
