Family Storytime in the Garden

This Summer, Family Storytime will meet outside in the Queset Garden. No registration is required and all families are welcome!

Family Storytime is perfect for preschoolers but fun for the whole family! Learn (or relearn!) favorite songs & rhymes and enjoy a few stories each week. This program meets every Thursday at 10:30am with Miss Alyisha and runs for about 30 minutes. Siblings are welcome. Please bring a blanket &/or chairs  -- and don't forget your sunblock!

Note: Storytime programs will be canceled if the weather does not allow us to meet in the Garden. If skies are cloudy and gray and you find yourself unsure about the day's events, you can check the Wiggleworms calendar event or visit the Library's Facebook page for updates. 

Please contact kids@amesfreelibrary.org with any questions or concerns.
