Family Fun: S'more Stories - and Crafts!

It’s getting dark earlier… perfect for stories and snuggles under a blanket, or if you’re feeling brave… slight scares around a campfire! Starting tonight, throughout the month of October, check our website for new storytimes with Miss Alyisha! These gently creepy fall stories are perfect for preschool and early elementary aged children. You can find the links to these videos at our Kids' homepage to hear about ghosts, mummies, and more!
