Join the Fun with Our Library Programs for Children

The Daleville Community Library gives your child the opportunity to read, imagine, create, express, and explore through our library programs for children! Bring your child and join in on the fun with these special events:

Children’s Story Time (Ages 1-5)

Preschool story time is held each Thursday at 11:00 a.m. and 1:30 p.m. Children listen to stories and create a related craft. The youngsters enjoy working and listening with their peers. Please call or visit to sign your child up! Signing up is required to ensure we have enough crafting materials for every child. Story Time last approximately 30 to 45  minutes.

Summer Reading Program (Ages 3-12)

Local children are invited to participate in a six-week program to keep track of their reading and earn special prizes. For every five consecutive days of reading (or an adult reading to them), children are awarded a small prize donated by an area business (gift certificates, arcade tokens, etc.) and entered into a special drawing on the finale night in which three gift certificates (valued $25-$50) to local stores are awarded. We have a big kick-off party in addition to our finale night celebration, and it’s always a lot of fun for our patrons, both young and old!

Seasonal Special Events

We host various special seasonal events for children, including an annual visit with Santa with cocoa and cookies, a small Easter egg hunt, a Halloween party with a corresponding themed story time, crafts, and refreshments, as well as annual Literacy Nights at various local schools to promote library membership.
