LIVE Zoom Family Storytime

Fun for all ages is now LIVE at Family Storytime! Zoom in for a storytime perfect for preschoolers, but fun for the whole family.

Since kids are missing the social aspect of in-person storytime, we've added a short show-and-tell to the beginning of storytime. Kids are welcome, but not required, to share one favorite item (toy, stuffed animal, etc.) with their storytime friends and Miss Jess as we get started each week.  

During storytime, you'll learn favorite songs & rhymes, in addition to hearing fresh stories each week, and because we're LIVE you'll be able to interact with Miss Jess during these activities! These storytimes will run for about 20 minutes, starting at 10:30 a.m.
