Storytime programs are designed to best serve groups of no more than 20 children. No pre-registration is required, but groups larger than five are requested to call at least two days in advance.

Book Babies

White teddy bear, book

Lumpkin County Library

It’s never too early to chew on a good book! Designed for babies from birth to 23 months (along with their parents), this program builds the foundation of early literacy through songs, action rhymes, books, and playtime.

Storytime is a wonderful opportunity for your babies to hear lots of new language and for you to meet other new parents!

We will have structured activity for 15 minutes with playtime afterward.

Check our calendar for upcoming storytime dates.
