Story Hours

The Orange City Public Library offers story times for 10 weeks in the spring and fall. Each story time is planned with a particular age range in mind, but all children are welcome to join us! Children under three must have an adult accompany them to library programs.

Preschool Story Time

Your child can join us for stories at the library! Thursday mornings, preschoolers will benefit from even more exposure to literature through a variety of books, activities, and crafts!

Song and Rhyme Time

Children 6 months-3 years and their caregivers enjoy this lapsit program featuring books, rhymes, songs, and stories, while learning pre-literacy skills.

1,000 Books Before Kindergarten

1000 Book Before Kindergarten is the beginning of an incredible journey that encourages a child to have a passion for reading at a young age. Setting aside time to read with your child also creates memories and priceless bonding time. Sign up your child (ages birth – preschool) for this fun, self-paced program. Record the books you read, and attend a graduation ceremony for your child after you read 1,000 books!

Crazy 8’s Math Club

“…build stuff, run and jump, make music, make a mess…it’s a totally new kind of math club!” We offer Crazy 8’s to K-2nd graders and 3-5th graders.

Art Classes

We love to give kids an opportunity to create after school with experienced artists. These classes are usually offered as a series for a small fee.

Friday Fun

On early out Fridays we offer a variety of activities for students. In the past we’ve offered drama, LEGO, and chess classes.

Summer and Winter Reading Programs

Each year the library holds the reading programs in the winter and summer. Anyone, no matter their age, can participate.
