Story Time

Listening to someone read a story teaches a child how to read out loud themselves.  It also creates an “inner voice” the child can draw on when reading on his or her own… plus it’s fun. Here is a list of bookstores, libraries, museums, and other venues that have free storytimes for children. Please check their links, or call their locations, to make sure times and times and dates have not changed. You can also email us if you would like to have a venue added to the list.
