Families with pre-schoolers to 3rd graders - join us at Morrisson-Reeves Library as we host two very special Storytimes in November – with local authors reading stories to children!

The Author's Storytime will reflect the joy of reading and provide the chance to rediscover children's books from the author's perspective. Each author will read a favorite selection by an author of their choosing as well as one of their own books. This event is free and open to the public. Best suited for ages pre-school to grade 3.
