Appy Hour, new and improved

This fall, I’ve re-vamped my app storytime into Appy Hour! I’m experimenting with different times for evening programs, and families are invited to bring a picnic dinner and eat during the program.


I always start with a book app, followed by a demo of a few different fun apps, aimed at both younger kids and older kids. After storytime, then we have a free play time- kids and families can try out the apps on the library ipads. If there are younger kids, I pull out some balls and other toys too.

I quickly learned that parents want to look up the apps I use, so I offer a hand-out with both a list of apps and a sneaky parent tip to use at home!

  1. This sounds like so much fun! I would love to see the list of apps you typically use and learn more about how you run this program!
