Storytime Resumes in September

During the school year Story Hour meets every Tuesday at 10:30 and Thursday at 1:30 in the children’s room.  Families gather to hear stories, sing songs, play readiness games and make crafts together.  Story Hour is designed to support toddlers and young children in learning literacy, math, social skills, and emotional development.

Story Hour follows the schedule for the Orleans Elementary School.  If school is not in session, Story Hour will not meet.
