A couple of really neat online story time websites I just discovered! Click on the link below the description to explore their websites.

Storyline Online is a free website introduced by the Screen Actors Guild (SAG). The Site features SAG members reading children's books online. There is a wide variety of books to choose from.

Just Books Read Aloud is a neatly organized website where you can choose the length of the book, author, narrator, topic, reading level, and language. There is free access to all the books, but a membership is optional.


As of May 19, 2020, the Villisca Public Library re-opened to the public to provide access to physical materials, but with reduced hours. Other services are limited or restricted. Please check out the About Us tab at the top and click on Plans to read the Villisca Public Library's Re-Opening Phased Plan.


Click the READING Tab at the top and select Using BRIDGES folder for directions on how to check out an eBook or audiobook from our library :)

-Your Winter STEM Connection-

The Winter STEM Connection is for all area children, preschool-5th grades and their families. STEM bags will be distributed per family unit. Each bag will contain a month’s worth of STEM activities. They will be organized by week and theme. Themes are Snow, Weather, Animals in Winter, and Winter Sports. The bags will include: challenges, activities sheets, games, suggested reading lists, recipes, snacks, and all the necessary materials to complete activities. There also will be a final survey to fill out and return to the Library for a prize!

This is a FREE program!!! This program is made possible by the Villisca Public Library and the SW Region Governor’s STEM Council of Iowa.
