Introducing Storytime Kits!


The Ottumwa Public Library is excited to announce a new way to bring storytime to your home. Introducing 

Storytime Kits!

Each kit includes books, music and additional material all relating to popular themes such as Trains, the Alphabet or Snow. Patrons now have the opportunity to borrow a specially curated collection of 4 books, 1 music CD and storytime instruction sheet that includes songs, rhymes, a simple craft idea, an early literacy tip and a list of additional books on that topic. These Storytime Kits are perfect for the classroom, homeschooling or just for having a special storytime at home. 

Patrons can check out 2 Storytime Kits at a time and they can be borrowed for 3 weeks. The library would like to gratefully acknowledge the Pella Rolscreen Foundation for sponsoring this new collection. To search the growing list of Storytime Kits, please visit and use the dropdown menu under Children’s Materials or search keyword Storytime Kits. Books and material are geared towards ages 3-7.
