Until Joslyn reopens in 2024, we are bringing art and inspiration to sites around town. See below for upcoming programs and events, and click here to learn more about Joslyn Around Town.

Art Adventures Visits Storytime

Bring your young readers and artists to Omaha Public Library Benson Branch located at 6015 Binney St. 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 at the Benson Branch. 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! Come to one or all—or join us at another neighborhood branch next season.
