Art Adventures Visits Storytime

Bring your young readers and artists to Omaha Public Library Saddlebrook Branch located at 14850 Laurel Ave. for a free drop-in program combining former favorites, Art Adventures and Story Adventures. Children must be accompanied by an adult.

Four sessions will be presented, beginning Tuesday, January 16 at 10:30 am, and continuing on the third Tuesday of each month, through April.

Sessions include storytime presented by a librarian, complete with songs and creative movement, plus a hands-on art activity inspired by a Museum work. Art Adventures Visits Storytime is geared toward preschoolers, but all ages are welcome to participate in the fun! For monthly themes and other details, download a pdf of the flier.
