I have brought my child this past year for the 3yr old storytime. I appreciate the ladies who are conducted the class as they try to bring reading into the lives of the children.

What I don't understand is the fact that parents are allowed to bring all the children below 3 yrs. old, which distract and cause alot of non attentive children. I would appreciate it if the paid library attendant would try and curb this behavior and talk with the parents as they enter the area and have them take the little ones younger than 3 to the other room. I don't think it is an imposition, as the 3yr olds would be fine with the adult leader in the room.

I only want this to be a successful program for those children that are trying to be attentive and really get the most out of the storytime.

My 4 and 5 year old love coming to Storytime! The instructors are a lot of fun, the books they pick are fantastic, and the craft at the end is engaging and creative. Thank you for doing this!

I really wish there was a story time on the weekends for us working moms who want to do activities with our infant in the weekends.

Are there any other age storytimes available? I'm surprised and disappointed that it's only 3 and up. Libraries especially should be encouraging reading to children earlier then 3

Yes, 13 libraries have Toddlertime for 1 and 2 year olds, 3 have Babytime for under 12 months, and 6 have Music and Movement for 2-3 year olds. You can find the times and locations here: https://ppld.org/kids/programs

I just read an article that some libraries across the country are allowing Drag Queens present their lewd lifestyle. I certainly do not want this happening in Colorado.

"Drag Queen Story Hour" states as its objectives:

"...[capture] the imagination and play of the gender fluidity of childhood and gives kids glamorous, positive, and unabashedly queer role models..."

"...kids are able to see people who defy rigid gender restrictions and imagine a world where people can present as they wish, where dress up is real."

"...Many children express gender fluidity. DQSH teaches children to embrace gender diversity in themselves and in others..."

Remember the words of the first dictator of the Soviet Union, Vladimir Lenin: "Children, like soft wax, are very malleable and they should be molded into good Communists."

While many libraries across the U.S. do offer “Drag Queen Storytime,” Pikes Peak Library District has not provided it as a library-sponsored program. We do make our meeting rooms available to the public, and all community members are allowed to use them for any purpose as long as it does not violate our Meeting and Study Room Policy. “Drag Queen Storytime” does not violate this policy in any way. You can review all of our policies here: https://ppld.org/policies.

Hello! I am looking for a professional storyteller to come to my preschool classroom in Colorado Springs. Do you know someone? I am wanting someone to come on World Storytelling Day - March 20th.

Hello,

I work for a Special Needs adult day program. Would they be able to attend as well?

Storytime is designed for ages 3-7. We have a number of programs for special needs adults, called Library Explorers. They often feature music, movement and animals, etc. that are similar to some of the children's programs. Find out more: https://ppld.org/library-explorers
