Children's Programs

Below you’ll find a list of regular Children’s Programs happening at Shreve Memorial Library. Many of our branches offer regular storytimes each week. We encourage you to bring your children to the library and sign them up for their own library card. Early literacy is very important for children and we’ve made it our mission to help prepare Caddo Parish children for school and life.
