Storytime Overview

The WJ Niederkorn Library offers programming and storytimes for children ages 6 months through grade 6. Some programs are for parents and children, some for the entire family and some for children to experience on their own. The library remains flexible on all our age restrictions, but they are in place to help us help your child develop.

Cindy Beyer, our Children’s Librarian, is available to answer your questions and to further the development of you child and to foster a love of reading and lifelong learning.

She may be contacted by phone at 262-284-5031, by email at and at the library in the Children’s Department.
