Family & All Ages Programs

Pajama Story Time

Tuesday, December 6 & 13  at 7 PM

 

Join us for a storytime for children of all ages before bedtime. Pajamas are welcome but not required! 

 

These storytimes are fun AND brain-building through mindful practice of early literacy concepts. Early literacy is what kids know about reading and writing before they can actually read or write. Let’s build that foundation together!

 

FREE! No registration required. You can sign up for optional reminder emails through our online calendar.
