Regular storytimes run from Labor Day to Memorial Day, with some short breaks for holidays, etc. Check the current season's calendar for specific dates.

Baby and Toddler Storytime is for children ages 0-3 on Wednesdays at 10:15. We have 15-20 minutes of guided activities followed by free play and social time. We alternate weeks of traditional storytimes (books and finger plays) with weeks of art, music, movement, or sensory activities.

Preschool Storytime is for children ages 3-5 on Thursdays at 10:15. We typically read a story, learn a song or finger play, create a craft or do an activity, and end with a second story.

The Summer Library Program is for all ages and is on Fridays at 11am. It starts the week after Ladysmith School District ends their school year and ends the week before the Rusk County Junior Fair. Check the calendar to see what is happening each week.
