Programs & Services

Preschool Storytime is making a comeback! It may look a bit different, but we're so excited to see our friends again!

In order to keep everyone safe, we're asking families to register for sessions with their social bubbles. (No drop-ins at this time, please.) Each session will have approximately 30 minutes of stories and activities, with a fun craft to take and create at home.

Storytime @ Home will still occur Fridays at 11:15 on Facebook Live for families that prefer a virtual experience.

Questions? Contact Molly Walker @ 835-4632. Hope to see you soon!

REGISTER by calling 907-835-4632.

All programs are subject to cancellation as we monitor the COVID-19 situation.  We will use the infographic created by Valdez Unified Command to inform these decisions.
