Thank you for Coming to Story Hour!

This Tuesday was our last Story Hour of the spring season. Thanks to all who came to paint fireworks, march in our parade, and–of course–listen to some wonderful stories!

Tuesday mornings with our attendees have been a blast. We hope to see you again in the fall. (But in the meantime, check out some of our amazing firework art!)
