Join us for an extra special Saturday Storytime with local author Valerie Bolling!
Families are invited to listen to Valerie read aloud from a selection of her wonderful picture books. We will get our wiggles out with some movement and music between these delightful stories.
Barrett Bookstore will sell copies of the picture books, which can be signed by the author herself.
Registration isn't required, but anyone who signs up on the Library's website before the event will be entered into a raffle to receive a selection of Valerie's beautiful books!
Recommended for families with children age 3 and up.
