Storytime at the Fort Scott Public Library is offered two times a week.

“Storytime offers families early literacy skill-building, group interaction, and more through identical, themed weekly story hours on Tuesdays and Wednesdays at 10 a.m,” Valetta Cannon, youth librarian, said.
During a typical storytime, Miss Val reads two to three stories, sings and shares fingerplays with the children, and guides them through creative play, a craft project, and a snack.
Children are able to request favorite themes for future storytimes as well.
For more information and a list of upcoming themes, see the Fort Scott Public Library Facebook events page at or visit the library’s website at
Children 2nd grade and below should remain under adult supervision at all times.
Storytime is free and no pre-registration is needed. Miss Val hopes to welcome your family soon.
The library is located at the corner of National Ave. and Second Street in Fort Scott.
