The Seguin Public Library Youth Services Department provides programs for children so that they may come to know the library as a place of adventure and discovery. Some programs require registration.
Library storytimes are planned by professional librarians trained in early literacy practices and book selection. Storytimes incorporate a variety of books, songs, nursery rhymes, puppets, play, and crafts. Caregivers must stay with the child during all storytime sessions.
- Babytime is geared toward babies ages 0 to 18 months. It typically includes 1 story or concept book, many songs and rhymes, and playtime with developmentally appropriate toys.
- Toddler Time is geared toward ages 18 months to 36 months. This session is more active than Babytime and includes 2 - 3 stories, songs, rhymes, and playtime.
- Preschool Storytimes are geared toward ages 3+. These sessions include 3 books, songs, puppets, and rhymes, and are followed by a craft or activity. This is typically when we start teaching children to sit down during the stories. Parents are encouraged to talk to their children about listening to the stories, sitting down, and keeping their hands to themselves.
The Summer Reading Experience is a free 8-week celebration of reading and fun challenges and events the library offers through the months of June and July to children, teens and adults.
Science, technology, engineering, arts and mathematics (STEAM)-based programming, book events, and games typically for children in Kindergarten through 5th or 6th grades.
The library hosts regular events geared toward preteens ages 9 to 12, including Preteen Gaming Night and Preteen STEAM Night. Kids in this age group may also attend other children's events like LEGO Club, Ukulele Club, and Chess Club.
