Summer SparkSummer Spark: Summer Learning Program

Summer Spark encourages kids to have fun, stay active, and keep learning all summer long. Join in the fun by attending free virtual programs at your library and earning prizes by completing reading and activity challenges!


Storytime on Facebook Live

Join us on SPPL’s Facebook page Tuesdays and Thursdays at 10:30 a.m. for stories, songs, and movement to support development and learning.


Join Miss Carla as she reads aloud the first chapter of some of our favorite kids' books that can be enjoyed by the whole family.

If you like what you hear, borrow the book from the library to continue listening or reading.

Storytime @ Home Guides

Storytimes are an important part of library programming. While the library is temporarily unable to offer in-person storytimes, we are looking for new ways to foster literacy development in young children.

Storytime @ Home Guides are a way for your family to experience a themed storytime in your own home anytime that works for you. Each guide has links to videos of read-aloud stories, songs and fingerplays, and simple preschool craft and extension activities. We hope you enjoy these storytimes together as a family!
