Free Family Fun @ the Library!

Revised post

Do you know that the Atascocita Library has many fun programs for children and their families?  Check out the schedule below! 


Avoid the ticket dash!  Register online!  Most events listed will have registration online.  Online registration opens up two (2) weeks prior to each event.  There will be limited amounts of program tickets available 30 minutes prior to the program on a first come is first served basis.

All children must be able to sit through the program without his/her parent.  We appreciate how much your children enjoy our programs, which is why we ask that only children attend so we may have as many in the room that safety allows.  We wish to make this a fun event, and safety is a top priority in that fun.

It is advised that parents/caregivers stay in the library during the program so if a child needs you, you can be reached.

Our regular weekly storytimes do not require registration and are limited  to room capacity.


  • Twilight Tales, Family Storytime,  Monday @ 7 pm 
  • Tales for Tots,  Ages 2 to 3 Years,  Wednesday and Thursday @ 10 am
  • Story Pals, Ages 3 to 6 years, Wednesday  @ 1:30 pm
  • Mother Goose Infant Lapsit, Newborns to 24 months, Wednesday & Thursday @ 11 am and Friday @ 1 pm
