Children’s Programs



Children are invited to come to the Morristown-Hamblen Library Children’s Room for fun games, including darts, cornhole, and stack ’em.  Everything is free, so come and enjoy some family time at the library!

Story Time at the Library

The Children’s Library offers programming for young children on Wednesday mornings from 10:30-11:30 a.m.  We enjoy stories, songs, nursery rhymes, music, dancing, snacks, and play time.  Activities take place in the Community Room and are limited to 20 participants at this time.

Online Storytime videos are posted to our Facebook page every Monday morning at 10.  You may also watch them on YouTube using the links below:

“Snow Day for Mouse”

“The Littlest Wolf”

“New in Town”

“What Kind of Car Does a T. Rex Drive?”

The January Lego Club meeting will be held on Saturday, the 22nd at 2 pm.  Please call (423)586-6410, or come by the front desk to reserve your spot.

Lego Club will look a little different for a while. We will not be sharing, or trading Lego’s between club members. Each child will have their own portion of Lego’s to build from. We will have building stations spread out to encourage social distancing. Masks are not required but are encouraged. The Lego’s will be cleaned after each meeting.
If you have any other questions or concerns, please give us a call!

We are so excited to see everyone, and see what cool creations you will build!

It’s going to be AWESOME!!!

Read to a Dog Program

Therapy Dogs Hope and Odie are coming to the Children’s Library on Saturdays at 11am.  The two dogs will be coming on alternate Saturdays.  Come and share a favorite book with one of them!

Our Read to a Dog program welcomes children to come and practice their reading skills.  Have fun while improving your reading skills with one of our therapy dogs.  If you can’t read yet, you can look at a picture book and explain in your own words what the book is about.  The dogs love to listen to you!  All children and their families are invited.
