Many local book stores hold weekly storytime sessions for free. They will usually have someone come in to read a few stories, sometimes do a few songs or a small craft and give a little snack. Most storytimes last approximately 30 - 45 minutes and they keep the kids entertained and interacting with other children. After the storytime is over, most of the parents and children will gravitate towards the children's section of the bookstore, and it gives everyone a great late morning/early afternoon activity.
If you plan to attend any of the storytimes noted below, please call the store in advance to confirm that the session is being held.
