San Diego Library Programs for Kids


(slideshow - swipe to see more photos)


Libraries often get overlooked for the great value and programs they provide to the public for free!


One of our favorite activities is joining the local library kids programs. The hip hop dance story time is one of our favorites, but we've been regulars at the kids concerts, ice cream socials and winter snow days. We always join the Summer & Winter Reading programs, mostly for the fun prizes like museum tickets and pizza vouchers.


The best part about kids library programs is they're ALL FREE! My kids love having their own library card; it gives them a sense of pride & responsibility and a constant feeling of connection to our community.


KIDS PROGRAMS AT SAN DIEGO LIBRARIES

Check out your local library and you'll likely find a calendar full of events that includes children's story times, baby sign language classes, and everything from yoga to LEGOs to arts & crafts to movie nights and so many more. Many even have kids' homework help, bike mechanic classes, school break camps and special holiday events too. They always have reading programs in the summer & winter; which often give out free prizes at the end like museum passes and restaurant coupons.


SAN DIEGO LIBRARY BRANCHES

We love library hopping to see how each library branch is different. They all have different features that set them apart! Some have cute kids play areas or even a stream outside on the back patio, while others are walking distance to great coffee or ice cream shops, nearby playgrounds, trails, duck ponds or even on a trolley stop.
