Virtual Storytime

Starting Wednesday, October 6th

Our Virtual Storytime will be geared for children ages 3 to 5.

When you sign up for Storytime, we ask for your email. We’ll send you a link where you and your family can view our story.

We’ll post the story each Wednesday that the Cushing Public Schools are in session, starting October 6th.

If there’s bad weather, someone is sick or something else happens where we have to change story time, we’ll let you know. We apologize if it’s short notice.

Activities and Crafts To-Go

For each Storytime, there will be an Activity-to-go or an easy, craft tutorial posted on the Storytime website. This week’s Storytime’ notices will say if an Activity-to-go is available for that week.

Activity Pick-up Times

You can pick up Activities-to-go at the library from 10 am Wednesday through the Saturday of that week, while supplies last. Activities-to-go will vary and may have crafts, coloring pages, puzzles, games or worksheets.
