Children's Storytimes & Events
The library offers a variety of programs for children, including storytimes, crafts, music and art programs, and special events. From September to June, the library holds regular preschool storytimes on Tuesday mornings at 11, as well as special themed storytimes. We also host the Play & Learn group, sponsored by Fall River Early Education, on Wednesday mornings at 10.
The Summer Reading theme for 2022 was Get Up! Get Out! Get Reading! Our 2023 theme will be Fairy Tales. We will offer weekly Stories on the Lawn under the Story Tent, every Tuesday at 11 a.m. And, of course, we will have seven weeks' worth of fun family events, including concerts, puppet shows, magic shows, wildlife visits, crafts, and more. All children who complete their summer reading goal win weekly prizes and are eligible for a grand prize drawing at the end of the summer.
Each week in the Children's Room
Each week when you visit the Children's Room, you can pick up a new take and make craft! We'll have a fun, seasonal selection of toys, decorations, and activities kids can make on their own.
Our take-home craft series is generously sponsored by Debby and Richard Danner.

Meet the Grinch!
As the song says, he's "a bad banana with a greasy black peel" ... but still we love him anyway! Dr. Seuss's The Grinch will return to the Fall River Public Library for this holiday meet and greet to meet all his adoring fans! A special "Grinch Craft" awaits all children who attend while supplies last.
