Programs for Children


REGISTRATION REQUESTED (Call or stop in to get on our list.)

The Elkader Public Library's Story Time is for toddlers through preschool-aged children. In-person Story Time will take place on Mondays at 10:30 am. Online Story Time via Zoom will take place on Thursdays at 10:30 am.

Story Time consists of stories, songs, activities, and crafts. These fun activities are designed to promote reading and learning.

Call 245-1446 or email the library at for more information.




The Summer Reading Program (SRP) is a continuation of Story Time for children up to Kindergarten. For students through 6th grade, SRP is to help combat "summer slide" so that students don't lose reading skills over the summer break from school.

Participants must be registered for the main program but everyone is welcome to attend the special programs or performances. Please stop by the library to pick up a registration form or download one here.
