Story Times For Kids

Research confirms that hearing stories read aloud is an important step on the road to reading success for young children.  We offer several story times designed for kids from birth to age 5 at all of our locations, from basic rhymes to movement and music.  Join us and cultivate a love of reading in your child early on!
