Story Time, a cherished reading program that promotes literacy in our community’s youth, begins its fall season on Tuesday, September 5, 2023, at 4:00 PM. Story Time is free to attend and is held on the grounds of Rye Patch, located at 100 Berrie Rd. This season our stories will highlight the importance of being kind, using your imagination, and many other fun reading adventures each week! Plus, the fall season will conclude with a special Halloween themed Story Time on Tuesday, October 31.
Every family in attendance will receive a free book to take home to build their own library and encourage a lifelong love of reading. This program occurs every Tuesday afternoon in September and October. Parents are encouraged to bring a lawn chair or blanket; snacks and drinks are welcome.
Families are encouraged to bring used books from home to help stock the Little Free Library in Hopelands Gardens. Located behind the Doll House, the Library provides a free book exchange that has further fostered the mission of Story Time since installation in 2017.
Story Time would not be possible without support from these gracious sponsors: The Aiken Homes Team at Meybohm; The Friends of Hopelands Gardens and Rye Patch, LLC; Lance and Cathy Traver; The Moseley Family; Bradley L. Boni, LLC; Kitfox Pediatric Dentistry; Wesley Bodie, ERA Real Estate Agent and John Lamprecht, ERA Real Estate Agent.
