Storytimes galore for tots in the South Okanagan

As the fall back-to-school ritual starts for children over five, the Okanagan Regional Library is ensuring preschool children don’t miss out on literacy learning by beginning a new season of storytimes and special events at six branches throughout the South Okanagan and Similkameen regions. All programs are free.

The Kaleden branch at 101 Linden Avenue will hold Storytimes for children aged three to five years beginning on Thursday, September 29. The program will run each Thursday from 10 – 10:45 a.m. until December 15. No registration is required, and you can reach the Kaleden branch at 250-497-8066 or check information at

Families in Keremeos can join their preschool Storytime program each Friday from 11:15 a.m. – noon beginning September 16 and running until December 9. This program is geared for two to five year-olds. On October 28, kids are encouraged to wear their Halloween costume, and December 9 will feature a special Christmas guest. The branch is located at 638 7th Avenue and registration for the programs is preferred. Call the keremeos branch at 250-499-2313 or visit


Families are welcome to visit storytimes at any branch in the ORL system. Please note that all ORL branches are closed on holidays Monday, October 10 and Friday, November 11 so there will be no storytimes on those dates.
