Grownup storytime  Why should kids have all the fun

Grownup Storytime

Why should kids have all the fun?  Adults also love being read to.  Come relax at Grownup Storytime.  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.

Grownup Storytime continues at the Sydenham branch for another four weeks: Mondays from 12:30 to 1:30 p.m., January 27 through February 24 (except Family Day on February 17), by the fireplace at Sydenham branch.
