Free drop-in program. Children must be accompanied by an adult. South Branch is located at 2808 Q Street. Questions? Contact Karla Lechtenberger, Education Programs Coordinator, at (402) 661-3846 or

While Joslyn is closed, two favorite programs for young learners and their adult chaperones—Art Adventures and Story Adventures—will take new shape at Omaha Public Library branches around town. Retooled as Art Adventures Visits Storytime, this free drop-in program will include a themed storytime, presented by a librarian and complete with songs and creative movement, plus a hands-on art activity inspired by a Museum work that connects to the day’s theme. Sessions are geared toward preschoolers, but all ages are welcome to participate in the fun.

First Stop: South Omaha Branch
Four sessions will be presented at South Omaha branch this fall - beginning Friday, September 16 at 10:30 am, and continuing on the third Friday of each month, through December. Come to one or all—or join us at another neighborhood branch next season.
