The Otterbein Public Library provides books, programs, audiobooks, databases, videos and eBooks for children.  Our Children’s Area has puzzles, games, a huge collection of puppets, and a new sensory table all readily available to entertain and educate our young patrons. It even has a bathroom in the corner ready for the urgent needs!

The Otterbein Public Library is excited to announce that we are an official “Mother Goose on the Loose” storytime facility. This thirty-minute nursery rhyme program is for children ages birth to three years. Mother Goose is unique because it is based on the Barbara-Cass Beggs’ “Listen, Like, Learn” method. It encourages the healthy development of the ‘whole child.’ During the half hour children will gain skills that help them learn how to read and connects them with books and illustrations in a joyful way. Children have fun while learning socialization skills such as taking turns and showing appreciation to others. The rhymes also aid in speech development and motor coordination. Mother Goose on the Loose will be held every Tuesday morning from 10:30am-11am and every Wednesday from 4-4:30pm.

Be sure to monitor the Library Events Calendar for upcoming children’s programs and keep an eye on the What’s New page for new children’s material.
