Story Time in the Gardens, a cherished reading program that promotes literacy in our community’s youth, begins its fall season Tuesday, September 5th at 4:00pm. Story Time will continue each Tuesday through the end of October, completing the season on Halloween. The theme for the season is “A Fairy Tale Fall”. 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.

Don’t forget to visit the Little Free Library while you are in Hopelands. Bring a children’s book from home to swap out so we can be sure the LFL is always stocked.
