Preschool Age Programs

Kuna Library Programs for Preschool-Age Children

We are so happy to have singing, dancing, crafting, storytime, movies, and STEM activities in the library again!
As a way to keep our patrons and staff as safe as possible we ask that you abide by the following protocols when visiting the library:  

  • Class sizes are limited and spots are given on a first-come, first-serve basis.
  • If you or your child are not feeling well, please don’t attend our programs, or visit the library.
  • Masks are not required in the library but we do strongly encourage them during programs as we are in close proximity to each other. 
  • Program schedules may change at any time.

Thank you for your cooperation and participation!
