Grownup storytime  Why should kids have all the fun

Grownup Storytime

Join us for the final Grownup Storytime in this round: 12:30 – 1:30 p.m. on Monday, February 24, at the Sydenham branch. Listen to a couple of short readings — short stories, essays, articles, excerpts and more.  Then enjoy a chat about what you've heard.  Bring your lunch or your knitting, or just take a break from a busy day. Be sure to  mark your calendar: after a break during March we’ll return for another five weeks, Mondays from April 6 through May 11 (except Easter Monday on April 13), still by the fireplace.  Why should kids have all the fun?
