SAPL is Here For You!

Our world is experiencing some drastic changes. SAPL wants to let you know that we are here for you throughout the process! Explore this guide for creative ideas, eBook picks, resources to help you and your family learn from home, and virtual programming.

Dial A Story / Telecuentos

For over 20 years the children of San Antonio have been calling into Dial-A-Story to hear a children's story.  The children's librarians record new stories every Tuesday and Friday, one in English and one in Spanish. 

Just call 210.207.4466 to listen!

Children's Programs

Our librarians are sharing new programs every week! Visit our Story Time, Kids Time, and Tween Time pages for more details. Grown-ups, please subscribe to the Library YouTube channel to view videos prepared by our children's librarians. Remember to also visit our events calendar for programs for every age group.

Adventurer's Book Club

undefinedAlmost as fun as reading books is sharing thoughts about them with others in a book club. Once a month we'll feature a new book to talk about, hosted online by SAPL children's librarians. Read the book(s) or just come to find out about them. 

Please register in advance for any or all of the book clubs! You'll receive email with the Zoom link after you register. 

We hope to read and chat with you soon!
