Storytime You Can Watch From Home

Oakland library locations are closed until further notice, but with today's technology, that doesn't stop storytime! OPL children's librarians are presenting germ-free virtual storytimes weekly on our Facebook page:

  • Mondays 10:30 AM: Play & Learn
  • Wednesdays 11 AM: Bilingual Storytime (Spanish)
  • Saturdays 10:30 AM: Family Storytime

We have gathered a list of free online stories, music, art, and more for kids and families to enjoy while practicing social distancing.

More fun for little ones:

  • Mo Willems teaches you how to draw his favorite characters
  • Mariela (an OPL favorite!) leads Rimas y Canto for toddler and preschoolers in Spanish
  • 123 Andrés plays live concerts in Spanish and English
 
Please note: Oakland Public Library provides access to entertainment and education all year round. Babies and children need words (and music and books) every day, and they have lots of fun while learning with you. We hope to see our storytime friends at the library soon, and also remind you to check out these cool online places anytime:
