Story Hour meets every Tuesday at 10:00 from October - April. Ages birth-5 years. An adult must attend with the child. We encourage early literacy by exploring weekly themes through books, crafts, and music.

Each summer the Manson Public Library provides programs for three age groups, Birth-preschool, TK-2nd, and 3rd-5th. For five weeks we explore themes, related to the overall summer theme, through books, games, and crafts. This is one way to help stem the "summer slide" of students.

We offer special programs throughout the year. Past programs have included: tea parties, pirate party, and New Year's Eve party. As well as special guests such as Dan Wardell from IPTV and Bug Zoo by ISU extension. Keep a look out for these events on our events page and facebook.
