Event Description: Story Time in the Gardens is a cherished reading program that promotes literacy in our community's youth.
Snacks and drinks are welcome. Parents may want to bring a lawn chair or blanket. A free book is given to each family in attendance at every reading session. Families are encouraged to bring used books from home to help stock the Little Free Library in Hopelands Gardens. The Little Free Library, installed in April 2017, is a free book exchange that further encourages the mission of Story Time.

Story Time in the Gardens is held every Tuesday at 4 p.m. during the months of March through May. There will be no Story Time on April 6. This event is for ages 8 and younger. Story Time is free to attend and will be held on the grounds of Rye Patch, located at 100 Berrie Rd.
