Storytime in the Park!

Join Ms. Jana & Ms. Sarah for a fun OUTDOOR storytime at the Alexander Park Pavilion #4!

There will be blankets available to gather your family on – or feel free to bring your own blanket from home.

The mobile library will also be present; families can board and check out a book (or more!) to take home after storytime is over. The bus will return every week so that book returns are fun & easy to do! (Items can also be returned to ANY library branch in Gwinnett) Entry to the mobile library will be limited to one family at a time.

Come prepared to have fun! Recommended for ages 2-6

Please note: as this is held outside, it will be canceled for any inclement weather situation (actively raining, nearby lightning/thunder, etc)

Participate in programs designed by early literacy professionals and learn ways you can best prepare your child for future school success. We challenge you to read 1,000 books with your little one before they start kindergarten, as well as complete all sorts of fun, early literacy activities. Come learn how you can be your child’s first teacher.
Our challenge for all readers, kindergartners through college students and beyond! Track the time you spend reading, earn activity badges for doing interesting new things, and win prizes. Reading challenges help you set and achieve new reading goals and motivate you to keep reading all year long.
