Outdoor Story Time

Outdoor Story TimeFriday, September 18, 2020 11:00am - 11:30am
Location: L.E. Shore Library

Grab your hats and sunscreen! The Blue Mountains Public Library is excited to announce the launch of our Outdoor Story Time on Friday, July 10th at our L.E. Shore Library. Weather permitting, we will be hosting an engaging and fun Story Time session every week on Friday at 11 a.m., throughout the summer. We will have social circles clearly marked on the lawn (Bruce street) and properly sized to accommodate you and your children, while adhering to all provincial and Health Unit guidelines on physical distancing. You will be able to sit and listen to stories, and sing-along to songs and rhymes! Please note that as the library remains closed at this time, and there will be no access to washrooms. While we normally support movement in our Story Times, due to physical distancing and to support everyone’s health & safety, all families and participants must remain within their marked social circle for the program. Please note that Outdoor Story Time is weather dependant. For rain days, check out our Facebook page for our Virtual Story Time program. Free program. Ages 0-5 . Drop-in. Spaces limited.
