Activities for kids at Phoenix Metro Libraries

Bookmark and Share

1) Read and Play.

There is no need to stress the importance of introducing your child to the concept of a book. Of course you can check books out to take home with you. But in addition to that, many libraries have really nice areas for the little ones, where kids can find some age-appropriate books, play and meet other children. You can also find many different free activities for kids at your local library, including games, arts and crafts, and even movies!

2) Storytime

Almost every local library offers “story time", when a storyteller from a library staff reads to the kids, sings with them, plays some simple games. You will meet other parents and kids there. And it's a great way to introduce your child to a group activity.
We suggest visiting a few local branches and then deciding which one you like better.
