Story Time in the Gardens, a cherished reading program that promotes literacy in our community’s youth, begins its fall season Tuesday, September 4th at 4:00pm. Story Time is free to attend and will be held at Hopelands Gardens on the Sand Patio, located near the fountains.
Snacks and drinks are welcome. Parents may want to bring a lawn chair or blanket. A free book will be given to each family in attendance at every reading. This program is held every Tuesday afternoon in September and October. Dates of the program are September 4, 11, 18, and 25, October 2, 9, 16, 23, and 30. Families are encouraged to bring used books from home to help stock the Little Free Library in Hopelands Gardens. The Little Free Library, installed in April 2017, is a free book exchange that further encourages the mission of Story Time.
