Joslyn Castle & Gardens and our friends at the Omaha Public Library welcome you to join us as we transform our gardens into a place of literary wonders. This is truly the stuff of fairy tales.

Once Upon a Time at the Castle is a story time adventure featuring a youth librarian from Omaha Public Library reading classic fairy tales from around the globe. After story time, we’ll reenact the tales using costumes, props, and the Castle gardens as our land of imagination. Each month will be a new way to engage with storytelling!

Join us Third Mondays, May-September at 5:30pm in the Castle gardens. Our June story time will be held on the Fourth Monday.
This is a free series for the community, best suited for children ages 2-8. Wear good shoes and BOYB (bring your own blanket). In the case of inclement weather or heat advisories, we will move inside the Castle or Carriage House.
