Story Time In The Gardens

October 31, 2023 @ 4:00 pm - 5:00 pm

Story Time, a cherished reading program that promotes literacy in our community’s youth begins its fall season on Tuesday, September 5, at 4:00 PM. Story Time is free to attend and is held on the grounds of Rye Patch, located at 100 Berrie Rd. This season our stories will highlight the importance of being kind, using your imagination, and many other fun reading adventures each week.
The fall season will conclude with a special Halloween themed Story Time on Tuesday, October 31st.

Parents are encouraged to bring a lawn chair or blanket; snacks and drinks are welcome. Families will receive a free book at every reading session to build their home library. This program occurs every Tuesday afternoon in September & October. 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.

In the event of inclement weather, Story Time will be held inside Rye Patch Reception Center.
