Storytime (September-April)

During this unusual time, our usual in-library storytimes have been cancelled.  The Pewaukee Public Library is proud to bring you a twice-weekly virtual storytime in place of these in-person offerings.  For information on other virtual library events, please visit our Virtual Events page on our website.

Stories @ Home, Tuesdays & Thursdays at 10:00 am
Ms. Jenny and Ms. Sandy will be singing songs and reading stories right on Facebook.  Find the full playlist of our past Stories @ Home broadcasts here.



The Pewaukee Public Library offers several different storytime options for young children and their caregivers during the school year (September-April).  Please note that our storytimes take place in four five-week sessions, and therefore will not necessarily take place every week.  Visit our calendar of events to confirm exactly when storytime is taking place.  Some storytimes require advance registration due to space restrictions.  Visit the calendar of events to sign up, or call the Children’s Desk at (262) 691-5670, Ext 932 for more information or for assistance in registering for one of these storytimes.
