Story Hour in the Park: Classics and Favorites
August 4 @ 14 h 30 min - 15 h 30 min
For ages 3–5
3–5 year-olds and their grown-ups are invited to join us for an interactive Story Hour outdoors in a small group! This program lasts one hour, and features songs, stories and hand rhymes in English. Each Story Hour is hosted by one of our children’s librarians with the help of a Library volunteer.
For this Story Hour, we’ll read stories about summer, seasons and summer vacation, including the Newbery award-winner Last Stop on Market Street by Matt de la Pena, illustrated by Christian Robinson.
This Story Hour will be hosted by Children’s and Teens’ Services Manager Celeste, along with volunteer Mary Wessels who will read books and lead you and your little one in songs and hand-rhymes during a live, interactive session. This participatory program is intended to encourage children to actively engage with stories. Plan to join in, sing along, and move around, and model movement and listening for your little one.
This Story Hour is free for Library members, and registration is required. Registered participants will be sent an email with more information about where we will meet. Registration closes 24 hours before the event. Each parent/guardian is responsible for their own child, and is expected to remain with their child for the duration of this activity.
We are an independent, nonprofit organization. With your continued support, we are able to provide over 200 programs each year for ages 0-18. If you would like to support the Library, you can donate here to help sustain this vital institution in its 100th year of service.
