Storytimes

BookKids storytimes are held at 10:30 AM every Tuesday and Wednesday, and at 11:30 AM on Saturdays.

Great Outdoors Storytime!

As tempting as it is to get comfy under a blanket and read all day, it’s important to go outside and get some fresh air! Today’s storytime is dedicated to exploring the great outdoors! We’ll kick it off with On a Magical Do-Nothing Day, and move on to other books about the beauty of nature. Join us at 10:30 AM.
