"Story time is not just for kids - reconnect with the joy of listening to stories! Join us each week to enjoy a book, bond over stories, feed your imagination, foster a love of reading and just relax. Our librarians will read aloud a children’s book, chapter by chapter over several weeks. If you miss a session, we will do a quick recap before continuing the book. Kids, Teens, Adults, Families, Neighbors…EVERYONE is welcome."
