Family Bedtime Stories, July 2, Oliver La Farge Branch

The Oliver La Farge Branch, 1730 Llano Street, offers a series of Family Bedtime Stories. Join us on the first Wednesday of each month at 6:30p.m. when Children's Librarian, Walter Cook, will conduct story times.

Cook has been a Children's Librarian for over ten years. Telling stories to families is one of my favorite things about being a Children's Librarian. Not only am I sharing great stories, I see families together listening and creating their own memories, says Cook.

Children and their families are invited to participate in fun stories and hands-on activities. This is a great opportunity to make literature come alive for the whole family, as well as build memories and stimulate family conversations.

For more information please call (505) 955-4867. This free program is sponsored by the Friends of the Santa Fe Public Libraryhandicap accessible
