Description: This is a literacy program for the entire family! This is a literacy program designed to celebrate a love of reading at all stages. We will utilize books, poetry, music, movement, finger plays, puppets, and other props to help families develop a shared appreciation of literature in a fun and joyful environment. This will be similar to the Family Storytime program that was part of our 2020 summer reading program.
