Storytimes are the cornerstone of our early literacy programming at SFPL. Every week, children, caregivers and librarians gather for storytimes—cherished moments to sing, read, dance and learn something new.
In that spirit, you can now press play on the Library’s storytime right in your home. Tune in to the Library’s Instagram account (@sfpubliclibrary) every Tuesday and Thursday at 2 p.m. and Saturday at 10 a.m. for “Sweet Stories with SFPL,” a short video of songs, rhymes and a story to enjoy with your young children. On Saturdays, we offer Sweet Stories en español, read by our very own librarians.
Don’t have Instagram? “Sweet Stories with SFPL” is also available on the Library’s YouTube channel. Replay Sweet Stories at your convenience and easily access them on any device wherever you might be. We encourage you to repeat them, as repetition is a great way for children—and grownups—to learn the songs.
