Digital Stories and Learning with PPL

Check out Peoria Public Library’s Storytime Anytime online storytimes. Each of these fun storytimes is created and performed by a Peoria Public Library staff member who loves to share stories, songs, and fun with you!  These storytimes are meant to be active and participatory so be prepared to spread out and wiggle around! We encourage grown-ups to participate too. Storytime is best when shared!
