Get Storytime In Your Pocket!

Now you can carry great library learning experiences...in your pocket! The Tulsa City-County Library is proud to announce the release of our Build-A-Reader app, which combines practical literacy tips, great book suggestions, and videos of library staff demonstrating brain-building (and fun!) songs, fingerplays, and activities to do with your child.

It's FREE, and you can find it in your mobile device's app store by searching "Tulsa City-County Library."

Build YOUR Reader with these 5 Activities

Academic research about early literacy development can be a little heavy on, well, academic terms. But it really all boils down to one idea: there are five basic activities you should do with babies and young children to set the foundation for future reading and school success:

Reading

Writing

Talking

Playing

Singing

I would like to take my daughter to storytime, but she is only 2 years old. Do you have storytimes for 2 year olds at the library?

The library offers special storytime programs for young children, including those who are newborn to age 2. These storytimes are typically called My First Storytime and they are held at many of our 25 locations. During the 0-2 year old storytimes, children and parents can enjoy developmentally appropriate songs, finger plays, and stories in a fun and nurturing setting. To find a storytime at a location near you, consult the Kids page, which is found under the Interests tab.
