Fort Bend County Libraries’ Cinco Ranch Branch Library presents a variety of free children’s programs – Family Story Time, Pajama Night Story Time, and After-School Breaks – every month. Conveniently located at 2620 Commercial Center Boulevard in Katy, the Cinco Ranch Branch Library is a hub for lifelong learning, fostering a sense of belonging and curiosity for all visitors - especially their youngest patrons. 

Family Story Time takes place on Wednesdays and Thursdays, beginning at 10:15 and 11:30 am, in the Meeting Room. Families with children of all ages will enjoy stories, songs, and action rhymes. Craft packets will be given out at the end of each program, so that children may take them home to enjoy. Because of elections and holidays, the schedule of children’s programs will be abbreviated in November.

The schedule of Family Story Time activities is as follows:
