Events for Children

Evening Family Story Time at MRRL

Join us for a new "Family" story time at MRRL! These story times are held in the evening and all the family is encouraged to attend. Eric reads a couple of books, leads the group in some singing and does a craft related to each story time theme. As a bonus - after the Tuesday evening story times, the Tail Wagging Tutors is the very next activity, so kids can go from having a book read to them and all the activities associated with that to reading a book to a dog! Join us at any of the upcoming events!

Thursday, May 3rd at 5:30pm in the Storyhour Room
