Preschool Storytime is for children ages 3 to 5 years. During this program, we read books and do activities to promote Kindergarten readiness.
Children can join us in the Activity Room any time between 4 and 5 to make a fun craft and take it home!

Sign up today to become a volunteer book giver on World Book Night and spread the joy of reading in our community! On World Book Night (April 23rd, 2014) 25,000 book givers around the country will each give away 20 copies of a specially-printed, World Book Night edition of a book they have read and loved, chosen from a list of 35 titles selected by a panel of librarians and booksellers. The volunteer book givers personally hand out their copies to complete strangers, people who may never have owned a book of their own. Why don't you sign up to be a part of this special night? The Wichita Falls Public Library has been approved as a distribution point for boxes of books.
