About Storytimes

Laptime is for children 0 – 18 months. Toddler Time is for children 18-35 months. Toddler/Laptime is for children 0-35 months. Participants enjoy age-appropriate books, songs, and action rhymes, using a variety of flannel boards, puppets, and more in the Storytime Theater.

Laptime and Toddler Time storytimes require registration and space is limited. Online registration usually begins about a week prior to the start of each session. Please register for only ONE storytime (Laptime, Toddler Time, or Toddler/Laptime). If you have more than one child in this age group, please sign them up for the same storytime. Yorba Linda residents may begin registering about a week prior to online registration by calling the Children’s Services desk at 714-777-2873. See more Children’s programs.

Why do I have to register for some storytimes or programs?

Some storytimes and programs require registration and are limited in space. Registration is required for a variety of reasons:

  • to keep the program developmentally appropriate for the age group
  • to maintain the safety of the room
  • to have nametags ready for each student
  • to have the caregiver’s contact information

What if the storytime or program I want to attend is full?

Due to popularity, some storytimes and programs fill up quickly. If a storytime or program is full, you will be added to the waitlist. If a spot becomes available, you will be added to the program.
