Dear Parents,

We’re committed to making storytime fun, safe, and educational for our young patrons. To ensure an optimal experience, we are asking all patrons to register for age-specific storytimes in one month blocks using their library card number.

Registration opens June 1 for July storytimes and July 1 for August storytimes.

  • Age-specific storytimes will be limited to 30 children and their accompanying parents/caregivers and siblings for Toddler Time and 20 children and their accompanying parents/caregivers and siblings for Bright Beginnings.
  • Priority will be given to Winnetka-Northfield District cardholders. All age-specific storytimes require registration.

No registration is necessary for our two All Ages Storytimes each week: Mondays at 10:30 a.m. at the Northfield Branch Library, and Thursdays at 10:30 a.m. at the Winnetka Library. Attendance is limited to the first 20 children and their parent/caregiver.

If you have questions please review our FAQ for more details, call me at 847-446-7220 x 5262, or email me directly at (

Thank you for your avid support of early literacy. We look forward to seeing you at our new and improved storytimes!
