Story Time Tuesdays

November 12, 2019

We are excited to announce Story Time Tuesdays. Each week at 10:30 am, you are welcome to bring children of any age for outdoor story time on our garden terrace. If it rains, we will move inside the mansion. We had such a wonderful turn out for story time during the summer that we will be continuing year round. We are happy to promote the importance of reading to children in our community and will gear the fall session towards children under five years of age. We will also incorporate some singing and play time following the reading.
